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
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.
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.

ABOUT FARRELL TREATMENT CENTER
Founded in 1978, Farrell Treatment Center (FTC) is a nonprofit substance abuse treatment facility located 12 miles southwest of Hartford, Conn. The facility offers a residential program for men, along with co-ed outpatient treatment. Co-occurring mental health disorders are also treated, but detox services are not available on-site.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Farrell Treatment Center aims to accommodate the variety of clients’ needs by drawing from a broad array of treatment modalities, including the 12-Steps, Seeking Safety, mindfulness, trauma-informed care, and neurobiological interventions.
The men’s residential program, which lasts 28 days, includes daily group therapy, individual therapy, and weekly family therapy. The Family Education Group meets every Sunday at 12:30 p.m.
An intensive outpatient program (IOP) meets for three three-hour sessions per week in the daytime or the evening. The center also offers general outpatient programming, with groups focusing on topics such as women’s issues, trauma, anger management, relapse prevention, early intervention, marijuana abuse, and treatment for young adults.
The facility has a staff-to-client ratio of 1:4, and the treatment team includes two consulting psychiatrists, a consulting physician, and two licensed marriage and family therapists, one of whom is trained in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational enhancement therapy (MET), and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). The single individual polled by Rehabs.com to date on the staff’s level of training and experience gave it five out of five stars.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
The residential facility offers 28 beds. There is currently no further information provided by the facility regarding its living arrangements and related offerings, however, both the individuals polled by Rehabs.com to date on the center’s accommodations, meals, and cleanliness gave four- and five-star ratings in each category.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Both alumni polled by Rehabs.com to date gave very positive feedback for FTC. “Very strong positive recommendation. Counselors know this field and are highly effective,” L.A. wrote. In addition, fellow alum Richard gave the center a maximum five stars overall. He awarded five out of five stars for the overall quality of its individual and group counseling, and indicated that he would recommend treatment at Farrell — though he awarded the facility a lower rating of two out of five stars for its holistic treatment options.
At the time of this writing, FTC had an average rating of 4.8 out of five stars based on 25 reviews on Facebook (where the center can manage its own page), and three perfect five-star ratings and one three-star rating on Google. Numerous reviewers on these secondary sites wrote that FTC had saved their lives. Alum Louis wrote in a representative review on Facebook: “This program truly saved my life… The counselors went above and beyond my needs. I love them all even the moderators were a huge help."
In the only less-than-stellar 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.” The facility replied to this comment to say: “We are glad to hear you are sober and found support and help. Yes, often the other addicts are more helpful than counseling.”
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
The single loved one polled by Rehabs.com to date gave the facility four or five out of five stars in almost all 15 evaluated treatment metrics, including its overall effectiveness, family program, and treatment for co-occurring disorders. The anonymous alum wrote: “Nice place."
Treatment costs $150 per day, or $6,000 per month, and the center is in-network with Anthem, Connecticare, United Behavioral Health, United Health Care, Optimum, and Health CT. IOP treatment is $45 per day. Outpatient rates are based on clients' income. The single individual polled to date on the center’s affordability gave it five stars.
