Acclaimed Inpatient and Outpatient Alcohol and Drug Rehab Programs in the Northeast

Whether it is your first time seeking treatment or if you have experienced a relapse and need professional support, our caring team of addiction treatment experts is here to help you restore total wellness.  At Mountainside Canaan, we utilize a data driven approach to create a personalized wellness plan to meet your unique needs.  Let us guide you sequentially through each step of your recovery journey or meet you wherever you are in the process.

Detox is the critical phase of removing toxic substances from your body. Our detox program combines medical best practices with a holistic approach for the most comfortable and safe detox experience possible. Our dedicated detox team provides you with 24/7 individualized medical care and support to help you through withdrawal symptoms and any other challenges you may face during the first days of your recovery.

Residential combines addiction education, 12-Step principles, and substance abuse counseling to help you better understand the root of your drug or alcohol addiction, relearn healthy behaviors, and gain relapse prevention tools. To complement clinical treatment, an array of wellness therapies and support network services help you foster total wellness. The holistic programming fortifies your foundation for recovery and better prepares you for life after addiction treatment in Connecticut.

Extended Care provides you with time and space away from triggers and negative influences to strengthen your recovery. Our structured sober living program helps you to develop fundamental skills to constructively organize your day, practice proper self-care, and cope with daily stressors.  By working through four phases, you incrementally build knowledge and confidence in successfully transitioning to independent sober living.

Outpatient Services offer an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and an Outpatient Program (OP) which combine group therapy and individual counseling sessions to help you understand the root of your addiction and develop relapse prevention skills. Individual Therapy (IT) is also available for those who want one-on-one sessions exclusively.

Adolescent Services teach teens how to address peer pressure, resolve internal conflicts, and manage their academic demands without misusing substances. Focusing on your teen’s strengths and weaknesses, we help them develop skills for positive decision making and refusal strategies that play a critical role in maintaining sobriety.

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) utilizes medications to help minimize severe cravings and withdrawal symptoms that can be extremely difficult and derail you from recovery goals. Our MAT program offers addiction medications – Suboxone, Sublocade, and Vivitrol – to support clinical therapy.

Recovery Coaching assists you in reaching short and long-term goals by partnering you with a certified recovery coach to guide you through lifestyle changes as you reevaluate your relationship with drugs and alcohol. Recovery coaches meet with you weekly to set milestones and review progress. They also check-in daily to provide support with challenges.

Telehealth Services enable you to have life-saving alcohol and drug counseling right from the comfort and privacy of your home. We use secure HIPAA-compliant video conferencing to help you communicate regularly with a licensed clinician or certified recovery coach.

Free Support Groups allow you to connect with, lean-on, and provide encouragement to peers who understand the challenges of addiction and recovery.  Free virtual and in-person support groups are available for all recovery community members as well as their families.
