Farrell Treatment Center Philosophy
At Farrell Treatment Center, recovery programs are designed to incorporate a variety of approaches, including 12-Step facilitation, mindfulness, relapse prevention, family involvement and neurobiological intervention. The facility offers both residential and outpatient care in a non-judgmental environment that promotes respect and dignity. The hope is that clients will find solutions, strength and hope within the walls of Farrell Treatment Center, and be able to pass their experiences on to help others who suffer from the disease of addiction.
Areas of Specialization
Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.

ABOUT FARRELL TREATMENT CENTER
Founded in 1978, Farrell Treatment Center (FTC) is a nonprofit substance abuse rehabilitation facility located in New Britain, southwest of Hartford, Conn. The center offers residential treatment for men, along with standard and intensive outpatient programming for men and women. Dual diagnosis treatment for co-occurring mental health disorders is available, as well as Suboxone-assisted treatment. FTC emphasizes a nonjudgmental, holistic approach.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Clients at Farrell Treatment Center can expect to follow individualized treatment plans, which draw from a mix of modalities. Among these are 12-step facilitation, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivation enhancement therapy, mindfulness training, and various trauma-oriented approaches, including Seeking Safety.
Psychiatric assessment, education on the biology of addiction, and yoga are also available, according to the center’s official Facebook page. As part of the 28-day men’s residential program, family education groups and therapy are provided weekly.
FTC intensive outpatient programs (IOP) meet three times per week for three-hour sessions, utilizing many of the same modalities as residential programming. The center also offers general outpatient programming. Specialized groups focus on such topics such as gender-based concerns, young adult addictions, anger management, relapse prevention, early intervention, and marijuana abuse.
The staff-to-client ratio at Farrell Treatment center is 1:4, according to information provided to Rehabs.com by the facility. FTC's website references two consulting psychiatrists, a consulting physician, and eight treatment specialists, including certified alcohol and drug counselors and master’s level therapists. A September 2017 New Britain Herald profile story reported that all staff members have received training in trauma care.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
The 28-bed Farrell Treatment Center is set in a restored historic, multistory, red brick former convent. Photos on the center’s official Facebook page indicate that chefs on staff provide most meals.
There is currently no further information provided by the facility regarding its living arrangements and related offerings.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY
At the time of this writing, Rehabs.com has received feedback for Farrell Treatment Center user reviews from two alumni of the facility.

The other alum gave perfect five-star ratings for treatment effectiveness and meals and nutrition, and wrote that treatment worked for those with a desire to recover.
Likewise, four individuals contributed to a rating averaging 4.5 out of five stars for FTC on Google. In the sole written comment, alum Chad thanked two staff members in particular, writing: “This place saved my life.”
The center’s official Facebook page, which its staff may monitor, yielded 25 five-star ratings out of 27 reviews. Alumni concurred with Chad’s characterization of Farrell as life-saving, also highlighting the staff’s commitment to clients. “The counselors went above and beyond my needs,” Louis wrote.
In the only mediocre review, Ty wrote on Facebook: “The program was nothing but book text. No real life experience. I learned more from the fellow addicts in the house then i did from the staff that try to drill the same thing over and over and over.” A facility staff member responded with support, acknowledging that other clients can be most helpful.
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
The one loved one polled by Rehabs.com to date gave the facility four or five out of five stars in most of 15 evaluated treatment metrics, including its overall effectiveness, family program, and treatment for co-occurring disorders. The only rating below four stars was three for counseling options, echoing one Facebook reviewer's criticism of repetitive counseling, despite the center’s promotion of therapeutic diversity.
According to the Farrell Treatment Center website, residential treatment costs $6,000 per month, and the center is in-network with several public and private insurance plans. IOP treatment is $45 per day, and outpatient costs are assessed on a sliding fee scale. The single individual polled to date on the center’s affordability awarded five stars.
