Located in Willimantic, Conn., Thomas Murphy Center Intermediate Residential Treatment Program is one of three residential treatment programs offered by Community Health Resources (CHR), a regional treatment provider. CHR offers a comprehensive array of treatment services for individuals struggling with substance abuse, mental illness, and co-occurring disorders. The Thomas Murphy Center offers residential treatment for adults transitioning back into the community after primary treatment. The facility does not provide detoxification services on-site.


Before admission, clients undergo an initial assessment to ensure the transitional program is an appropriate level of care. Residents can stay for up to 180 days. To assist individuals in their recovery after primary treatment, the facility provides a structured environment where clients reside while they continue their recovery and prepare to reintegrate back into the community. Individuals involved in the criminal justice system, as well as clients on methadone maintenance are accepted.

According to the facility's website, the Thomas Murphy Center focuses on employment and education during the day and substance abuse treatment in the evening. During the transitional program, clients adhere toindividualized treatment plan, which includes individual counseling, family counseling, educational classes, and group counseling.

According to the facility's website, clients also participate in support groups, which may include 12-step immersion. A Seeking Safety curriculum is also integrating into programming for individuals with trauma-related concerns. In addition, the facility offers recreational activities, continuing care planning, and referrals for psychiatric assessment and consultation.

"Caring, experienced, certified staff," Brian wrote.

Currently serving as a counselor, he also offered four-star ratings for the facility's executive management, in regards to both client privacy and staff training.
