People seeking treatment for a substance use disorder have access to a wide range of programs and services. The State of Connecticut runs a 24-hour access and entry line where individuals can get information on in-patient substance use treatment programs. Walk-in assessment centers are also located throughout the state and offer evaluations as well as Naloxone (Narcan) treatments.

As part of treatment, individuals may receive medication, counseling and/or other support services. The goal is to reduce or eliminate drug or alcohol use.

During counseling, individuals work to understand their addiction in order to reduce or eliminate substance use and prevent relapse. Depending upon the individual’s needs, counseling may occur in a one-on-one, group or family setting.
