Outpatient Treatment

We offer intensive outpatient (IOP) and outpatient services in our Hartford and East Hartford locations to assess and treat substance use disorders.

The InterCommunity Outpatient Counseling Center in Hartford is located on a city bus line and offers ample parking. Outpatient services include individual and group therapy, alcohol and drug education, relapse prevention, family therapy, and ongoing after-care.

Intensive Outpatient treatment for adults is offered in both day and evening hours and runs three times per week, three hours each day, Monday through Friday.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid addiction uses medications such as Suboxone (buprenorphine) to block the euphoric effects of opioids, relieve cravings, and stabilize brain chemistry. Research shows that MAT is effective in decreasing opiate cravings and preventing relapse among people addicted to opiates. MAT is available at our Hartford and East Hartford locations.
