Outpatient Addiction Services
MCCA offers outpatient treatment services through individual, group and family therapy. Clients are able to participate in a variety of programs such as intensive outpatient services, relapse prevention, early intervention and specified support groups. Through these supportive therapies clients are able to recognize triggers and destructive behavior and begin to create the positive changes leading to the well-being created by a healthier lifestyle. Family education and therapy is also available and covers the many issues family members must cope with when dealing with a loved one suffering from addiction or mental illness. “Our objective is to accommodate clients by allowing them to remain in the home and be able to work or attend school while in treatment.” MCCA has 6 other outpatient service locations in western Connecticut.
Family Member Quotes
“My son spent many years going to other rehabs for his alcohol addiction. Nothing made even a tiny dent until he went to MCCA. They have wonderful programs and his individual counselor has continuously been there for him. He still sees her and he credits MCCA, the programs and counseling with giving him the evidence based tools, understanding and support he needed to fight his addiction.”
“We were scared and embarrassed and there is the element of blame. The “How to Cope” program really drove home that our son is responsible for his decisions.”
“I wanted to stop drinking but thought I was beyond help. MCCA showed me that people do recover if they are willing to learn about their addiction and make the effort.”
“I felt ready, but scared, and I gave back a lot. I spoke at rehab. I kept giving back. I didn’t want to leave MCCA because they had given me sobriety and for that I will always be grateful.”
“Relapse prevention and family therapy was an experience I will always remember. It was the first time I opened up and really learned about my addiction. My counselor was so important to my recovery – she loves her job and it shows.”
“Everyone we reached out to at MCCA was so responsive. Anytime, we’ve had an issue, a question, a concern, everyone was very accommodating.”
