One of the imperative decisions when you or your loved one chooses between drug abuse rehabs in CT is deciding between Outpatient versus Residential Rehabilitation. Many people quickly choose outpatient rehabilitation thinking it will be more comfortable and less expensive. While this is sometimes correct, studies indicate those choosing residential treatment in 48-day, 60-day or 90-day programs are less prone to relapse long-term. Wherever you decide to get rehabilitation, the first step is making a choice!
Staying around your home city is not always the right choice, as you are closer to the individuals and circumstances that caused the drug abuse in the first place. Particularly if you're considering executive or luxury alternatives, there may be added benefits and advantages in treating a long rehabilitation stay like a break and going outside Connecticut. Many of the top-rated treatment facilities have services and venues that make them feel more like 4-star resorts so rehabilitation can be therapeutic and enjoyable. Ultimately, the choice is up to you, but you can reach us at our toll-free hotline: (888) 609-9283 .

One of the most comprehensive drug and alcohol use studies in the country is published by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Each year they survey Americans in every state to find out who’s using what, how often, and whether or not they’re getting the treatment they need.
The numbers for Connecticut’s most recent survey results are published in a document called Connecticut Substance Abuse and Mental Health Issues At-A-Glance – and they are troubling.
Drug Abuse Among Young Adults
The SAMHSA surveys reports that more than 23 percent of that age group had a problem with alcohol abuse or dependence in the year prior to the survey. Additionally, about 12 percent of that same age group struggled with a drug abuse or addiction issue in that same time period. Why?
The stresses placed upon young adults grow every year and those who graduate from expensive Connecticut universities into a less-than-welcoming economic climate can find it overwhelming. Add to this the usual pressures of performing well academically, choosing the right career, getting into grad school, and making the right choices in their romantic relationships and it’s not hard to understand why drug and alcohol abuse is such a rampant problem.
Addressing the Drug and Alcohol Addiction Issues in Your Family
When a loved one is struggling with drug and/or alcohol dependence, everyone in the family suffers. Problems arise:
Though you may have already had a number of informal conversations about the possibility of treatment, it may be time to consider staging a formal intervention. Gathering together others who love your addicted family member and planning to offer them the gift of recovery is a big step – but in many cases, it’s a necessary step. It can be the first day that your loved one fully realizes the level of risk that they are taking every day that drug addiction goes untreated.
