The use and prevention of illicit drugs continues to be a challenge for every state in America including Connecticut. Connecticut drug and alcohol treatment centers are servicing an increasing number of individuals who are addicted to prescription medications and methamphetamines.

Connecticut has some of the highest incidences in the country of persons who have admitted to illicit drug use including marijuana in the past month amongst those 18-25, alcohol use in the past month amongst those 12 and older, 18-25 and older then 26. The use of these drugs in Connecticut is at or above the national averages in each of the categories listed above.

A study done by the National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services found that there are roughly 200 alcohol and treatment centers in Connecticut. Most of these are nonprofit and private. In fact, 90% of them are. There has been a decline in recent years with most of the Connecticut drug and alcohol rehab centers closing, being private and for-profit though some non-profit and private facilities have closed as well.

The majority of drug rehab centers in Connecticut do offer more then one type of care and treatment formats, with most of them providing outpatient services. There are a decent number that offer residential care. More then 40 of drug rehabilitation facilities in Connecticut provide treatment for opioids and over 170 doctors and nearly 50 treatment programs that have certifications to offer Buprenorphine treatment.

Seventy-three percent of Connecticut drug rehab facilities do receive government funds and nearly 150 of them do have some type of contract or working agreement with managed cared programs. The fact that these drug facilities are subsidized makes them more affordable, especially those that are non-profit.

A National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services (N-SSATS) found though a one day census, nearly 20,000 individuals in treatment in Connecticut with most of them enrolled in an outpatient plan. About 3% of these persons were younger then 18.

There has some variance in alcohol and drug treatment enrollments in Connecticut over the years. The percentages of individuals that seek treatment for alcohol addiction-only, has decreased by about 28% in the last 15 years. At the same time, the percentage of individuals who seek help for heroin addiction has doubled going from 20% to 41%.

Drug rehabilitation centers in Connecticut are working hard to meet the demands of individuals that come to them for help. Drug and alcohol abuse continues to be a challenge that each state government, as well as the federal government must address. Monies given to alcohol and drug abuse rehab centers by governmental agencies is a step in the right direction.
