HOW WE CONNECT
OUR AREA'S CLINICAL SERVICES
We are a structured, trauma-informed sober loving home that supports healing the damage addiction has left in its wake so residents can connect to sustainable recovery. According to the clinical recommendations from the referring rehab, a resident attends therapy to support their progress as a recovering person. Each resident's program is individualized according to need: we follow professional recommendations and present the names of local therapists and medical professionals for group, individual, family, CBT, DBT, neurofeedback and EMDR. We assist residents in setting appointments that follow the clinical recommendations provided by the referring party.
We are also aligned with intensive outpatient providers, Project Courage, Turnbridge, Yale (includes the DBT program) and Recovery Services of Connecticut Intensive Outpatient Programs, and other single focus IOP services: addiction with a secondary diagnosis, eating disorders or LBGTQ recovery. We support Vivitrol or Naltrexone and will accept Suboxone when a taper is planned. We use a self-key locker system to hold medication and oversee its distribution when requested.
Addiction affects every member of a family. Being lied to and manipulated takes its toll on family members. Even though the family may not drink or touch even an aspirin, they may need recovery from the emotional and physical injuries delivered by the disease. Families may join a family relationship program or participate in therapy in their area to heal differences and rebuild their lives.
Our focus is on creating a safe space for self-expression. Art as the medium is perfect. Reflection of the heart mixes with the creative process for unearthing hidden and surprising answers.
