We recognize that the entire family can be affected when one member has an addiction or psychiatric disorder. That’s why we schedule regular meetings with family members, and offer several programs to help patients and their families throughout the recovery process.
Our 4-day Addiction & Co-Occurring Disorders Family Program offers families the opportunity to learn about the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of addictions and mood disorders. The program includes education about relapse prevention and aftercare strategies, communication strategies, conflict resolution and the opportunity to meet with other families in similar situations. Information on the neurobiology of addiction and mood disorders along with medication education are also a part of this program.
Patients who complete our transitional living program tell us their treatment was a vital part of their recovery. 80% of patients reported being alcohol and drug free within a year of discharge.
Patients may also purchase our Wellness Services which offer a holistic approach to recovery in recognition of the integration of body, mind and spirit. Services include yoga, acupuncture, personal fitness training, meditation and massage therapy. These alternative therapies are meant to be complementary to traditional medical care, not a substitute for it. They are most effective when combined with medical treatment to help alleviate symptoms of pain and anxiety. The benefits, both short term and long, help promote a feeling of wellness.
Transitional living takes place in Barrett House and Scavetta House.
New Canaan is located in Southern New England and weather conditions change seasonally and sometimes during the day. We recommend that you bring one week’s worth of clothing, in one small suitcase and that you be prepared to “layer”.
