“Addiction takes everything from people who struggle with it and hurts the people who love them. In the Outpatient Addiction Program, we help people break the cycle of relapse and become sober.”


John Douglas, M.D., M.B.A.

Service Chief, Outpatient Addiction Program
: 203 801 2231

“Addiction takes everything from people who struggle with it and hurts the people who love them. In the Outpatient Addiction Program, we help people break the cycle of relapse and become sober.”


Dr. John Douglas developed the Outpatient Addiction Program using evidence-based practices, and prides himself on “helping patients discover what works for them to become sober.”

After meeting Dr. Douglas, patients can expect to feel heard by someone who truly cares about the details of their lives, and to figure out together how best to move forward.

In the Outpatient Addiction Program, Dr. Douglas emphasizes the importance of group, individual, and family therapy. He also offers the full spectrum of psychiatric medications to treat both addiction and any underlying mental health problems. According to Dr. Douglas, “I work with patients to find the treatment that works best for them and, for many, maintenance medications like Suboxone, Vivitrol, and Antabuse are extremely helpful to reduce the risk of relapse.”

Dr. Douglas recognizes it takes courage to ask for help and enroll in any treatment program. For those who schedule an intake appointment with him, he says: “Welcome and you are in the right place.”
