TIPS: If you feel you're going to use

  • Find a peer support group: Connecticut 12-step meetings and other resources through the DRS directory.
  • Stay active and distracted—utilize local community centers, take walks, or use a local fitness center.
  • Access free addiction counseling through the Department of Children and Families 2-1-1 Connecticut.
  • Find an activity— experience the scenic shorelines, country drives, antique shopping, historic sites, and museums.
  • Avoid risky situations. Prescription drugs and opioids are commonly misused in the state.

TIPS: If you want to help someone

  • Find local resources through the Department of Children and Families and the DRS directory.
  • Be aware of overdose risks—resources available through the Connecticut Department of Public Health.
  • Assessment and screening are available through the Department of Children and Families.
  • Organize a family intervention and hire a professional interventionist.
  • Avoid enabling anyone struggling with a drug or alcohol addiction.

Long-Term Drug Rehab in Connecticut

At DRS, our professional opinion is that long-term treatment has proven to be the most effective approach to recovery when it comes to drug & alcohol addiction. Here are a few reasons why:

  • Remaining sober in the first weeks of treatment is important and requires a steady routine, which a long-term program can provide.
  • Everyday life can be highly stressful and potentially affect the efficiency of treatment, which can be avoided by living at the facility.
  • Long-term treatment in Connecticut typically lasts 30, 60, or 90 days, but depending on the needs of each person; they can last even longer.
  • Residents are surrounded by individuals whose main goal is continuous sobriety which can be very helpful during the process.

Various treatment choices are available in Connecticut to those seeking out a long-term program. If you need help finding treatment for yourself or your loved one, do not hesitate to contact one of our addiction specialists.

Getting Help With Substance Use: The Basics

Paying for Treatment in Connecticut

The cost of treatment in Connecticut can range from free to quite expensive. Ultimately, this depends on whether the person has health insurance coverage and their chosen program. Often, their insurance type will determine where they search for treatment. Those without insurance may need to look for programs offering payment assistance. There are also rehabs that take Medicaid in Connecticut.

Using Private Insurance to pay for Drug Rehab in Connecticut

Private health insurance can help a person get into better treatment programs faster. But it comes with a high cost that must be paid to maintain coverage. Often private policies won’t cover major services like rehab for the first year of continuous coverage, so it’s important to investigate this before assuming it will. Private insurers may also refuse to pay for services they don’t agree with or feel are not necessary.

If someone can’t afford private health insurance but has an income too high to qualify for Medicaid, they aren’t completely stuck. Connecticut was the first state to adopt Medicaid expansion in 2010, and it continues to aid residents in affording coverage. Participating providers sell policies at discounted rates through its exchange marketplace to those with financial hardship.

The following insurers are available through Connecticut’s health insurance marketplace for 2023:

  • Anthem
  • ConnectiCare Benefits, Inc.
  • ConnectiCare Insurance Company

Paying for Treatment when Uninsured

Even with all the assistance available in Connecticut, some people still end up paying for treatment when uninsured. This often happens because the person abusing substances has failed to obtain or maintain health insurance coverage during their addiction. Waiting to get them covered when treatment is needed is risky and should be avoided whenever possible. Usually, new policies have exclusions for major services like addiction treatment during the first year of coverage.

Instead, a better route may be the facilities that offer sliding-scale payment assistance. The person may qualify for a reduced fee based on their income. You can contact one of the treatment specialists at DRS for more information on how to pay for treatment. Or contact the center directly.

DRS’ Evaluation of Drug Rehab in Connecticut

The vast majority of substance use programs in Connecticut accept Medicaid health insurance or private health plans. In addition, over half of the providers in the state offer payment options or a sliding fee scale, with some providing services at no cost for clients who cannot pay. However, it is important to note that no-cost treatment is often offered to a specific demographic who meets certain criteria.

We recommend contacting the facility being considered and asking about insurance coverage and payment options. In addition, contact your health insurance provider to find out what is covered.

State and Local Resources in Connecticut

Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services

More Information

Michael Leach is a Certified Clinical Medical Assistant, who has over 5 years of experience working in the field of addiction. He spent his career working under the board-certified Addictionologist Dr. Rohit Adi. His experience includes working with families during their loved one’s stay in treatment, helping those with substance abuse issues find treatment, and teaching life skills to patients in a recovery atmosphere. Though he has worked in many different areas of rehabilitation, the majority of his time was spent working one on one with patients who were actively withdrawing from drugs. Withdrawal and the fear of going through it is one biggest reason why an addict continues to use and can be the most difficult part of the rehabilitation process. His experience in the withdrawal atmosphere has taught him that regardless of what approach a person takes to get off drugs, there are always mental and emotional obstacles that need to be overcome. He believes having someone there to help a person through these obstacles can make all the difference during the withdrawal process.
