The Southeastern Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (SCADD) is a nonprofit agency founded in 1966. Its Lebanon Pines facility in southeastern Connecticut offers long-term residential treatment for adult men struggling with substance abuse disorder. It's one of only 35 non-hospital substance abuse treatment facilities in Connecticut (about 16 percent of all facilities in the state) to provide residential treatment lasting longer than 30 days.

Detox services are available at the organization’s New London facility, as is aftercare, which may include referrals to outpatient programs and/or and sober living facilities.


The treatment process begins with a phone screening to determine if the client fits the requirements of the facility. Clients receive individualized treatment plans and stay for a minimum of 90 days, with additional time allowed as determined in consultation with a counselor.

The structured treatment program builds on a 12-step model, emphasizing the importance of developing support systems and self-awareness. Residents attend Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings, as well as individual and group counseling and addiction education classes. Education sessions focus on developing ways of managing healthy lifestyles, including relapse prevention strategies.

Lebanon Pines is also a work therapy program and clients participate in jobs which allow them to learn skills and develop personal responsibility while reintegrating into the community. Vocational training is also provided.

During treatment, referrals are provided when necessary for medical and psychiatric services.


SCADD's website does note that there is an advanced practice nurse practitioner for medical practices when needed, and that some staffers are on-site 24/7.


The 110-bed facility is set on 46 acres of serene woodlands and features a weight room and a swimming pool. Laundry services are provided. Access to phones and the Internet is limited, and clients may not have their cars on-site. Visitation is scheduled on Sunday afternoons.


The majority of alumni surveyed by to date (five out of six) gave Lebanon Pines highly positive reviews. Former clients praised staff for their compassion and experience, and described the treatment program as highly effective.

Staff's level of training and experience: 4.8/5 stars
Overall quality of counseling: 3.8/5 stars

"Helped me get clean and stay clean," Gerard wrote in a representative review. Former clients also indicated that the facility was well-kept, and that therapeutic meetings were held on a regular basis.

Cleanliness: 4.4/4 stars
Frequency of meetings: 4.8/5 stars
Consistency of meetings: 4.8/5 stars

A, the one alum who gave the rehab a negative review, complained about unprofessional staff and reported that the food was lacking in nutrition.

On Google[1], Lebanon Pines earned an average rating of 3.5 out of five stars based on six reviews. Opinions were split down the middle -- of the four former clients who left comments, two left positive feedback and two provided negative feedback. In a review representative of positive feedback, Guy credited the rehab with saving his life and wrote: "I needed to be away from everything and the 90 day stay provided a solid detox."

However, in a review representative of negative feedback, Michael complained about a lack of therapy and noted: "The process and psych-ed groups are basically worthless in terms of therapeutic benefit."


The sole loved one surveyed by to date indicated that they would recommend the program to others. They awarded the facility four out of five stars for its treatment effectiveness, its connectivity, its affordability, and its staff's level of training and experience. "They take care of their patients and help them any way they can," they wrote.


According to the facility’s website, only State Assistance General Assistance (SAGA) is accepted. It is among the roughly 66 percent of Connecticut facilities to accept some form of state-financed insurance.

This rehab facility is extremely unprofessional and is a toxic wasteland of horrible counselors who do not care about you. The food at this place is completely lacking nutrition in every way if you are diebetic your in for a rude awakening. I went there and got nothing out of this place besides clean time. I went to the AA breakfast this morning and my old counselor was extremely rude. The facility changed its visitation rules.

The program has a work therapy component and it's good to know that before you go. Also, just pay phones and limited internet access to help you focus on your needs. Overall, I was able to learn balance and develop a better understanding of myself
