Treating alcoholism with high-quality service. prompt evaluations.
Comprehensive Outpatient Alcoholism Treatment Practice
For the last seven years, Connecticut Addiction Medicine, LLC, has provided the highest quality outpatient treatment of Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) (Alcoholism). As a result our alcohol treatment practice has been recognized as Connecticut’s leading outpatient source for treating alcohol abuse and dependency.
Alcohol is the most common drug of abuse in the United States. Approximately 7% of the population suffers from some form of Alcohol Use Disorder. Surprisingly, less than 10% of those persons ever receive treatment; and the majority of those treated are not under the care of a physician. Our multidiscipline outpatient program produces successful recovery at a rate well above the national average. Approximately 70% of patients entering our program achieve sobriety and remain sober at one year.
Our services are comprehensive and evidence based. They are uniquely tailored to the individual’s needs. Each patient is guided through the stages of change; and all facets of their Alcohol Use Disorder are addressed, including hereditability, environmental, social, physical, psychological, and spiritual.
Our Alcoholism Treatment Team
The team consists of experienced clinicians, including an addiction psychiatrist, addiction medicine physicians, licensed alcohol and drug counselors, licensed clinical social workers, a psychiatric APRN (Advanced Practice Registered Nurses), and a medical APRN.

Telemedicine, the practice that allows patients to connect with practitioners for online therapy, virtual follow-up appointments, and immediate live advice from a specialist, has long enjoyed a slow but steady rise in availability for Connecticut residents, but the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic has led to a necessary expansion that has made its benefits accessible to anyone.

Naltrexone is a monthly injectable medication that decreases cravings and binds to receptors in the brain, preventing patients from feeling any pleasant effects from opioids or alcohol. Vivitrol may be initiated after opioid detoxification. It may also be used by patients who have completely tapered off of buprenorphine or methadone to prevent relapse.
