Our Practice

CT Addiction medicine

New patients and walk-ins are always welcome and will be seen within 48 hours of initial contact.

At Connecticut Addiction Medicine, LLC., we treat all patients with the problem of drug addiction and their associated behavioral health problems. All forms of substance abuse are managed, with special emphasis on opioid dependence and alcoholism.

The treatment team consists of experienced clinicians including an addiction psychiatrist, addiction medicine physicians, Licensed Alcohol and Addiction Counselor and licensed clinical social worker.

All the patients are followed individually, and all participate in weekly relapse prevention groups. On-site comprehensive urine toxicology testing is utilized to monitor compliance.

The pharmacotherapy component of the program emphasizes Suboxone for opioid dependence and Vivitrol for both opioid dependence and alcoholism.

Regarding pain management, studies have consistently demonstrated that Suboxone is an effective therapy for chronic pain of many origins.  Patients are able to be transitioned from traditional chronic opioids to Suboxone. The level of pain control is better than that achieved by chronic opioids and the risks of chronic opioid use are avoided.  At the prescriber’s discretion, other nonaddictive medicines are commonly added to Suboxone to maximize the pain relief effect.
