Adult Residential Detox

Detoxing from substances is the first step in recovery and often the most challenging.


Rushford’s caring and compassionate staff is committed to helping you safely and comfortably detox from opioids, benzodiazepines, alcohol or other substances. Our medical detoxification program offers medication to help ease the discomfort that comes as substances leave the body, along with 24-hour medical supervision from registered nurses and board-certified physicians.

Privacy and seclusion, close to home

Rushford’s private, secluded detox facility in Middletown offers the serenity of the Connecticut countryside in a centralized location, easily accessible from Hartford (20 minutes), New Haven (35 minutes) and the shoreline.

Treatment that starts when you’re ready

Clients in the medical detoxification program have the opportunity to get a jump-start on their treatment with group therapy – but only when you’re ready.

Comprehensive aftercare planning

After you’ve completed detox, Rushford’s treatment team connects you with the next step of your journey – whether you need rehab, extended residential care, outpatient care, medication-assisted treatment, or more.

Affordable, effective treatment

Cost should not be a barrier to high quality addiction treatment. Our treatment team works closely with finance and patient accounts to ensure that everyone has access to care they need.

Fitness and wellness opportunities on-site

While at Rushford's Middletown location, all clients are invited to access our on-site Planet Fitness exercise center or take part in yoga or meditation classes.

Lowest detox readmission rates in the State of Connecticut

Rushford’s unique programming and continuum of care help you get sober and stay sober.

Addiction Quiz

The following questions do not take the place of a professional assessment and are not designed to make a formal diagnosis of an addiction.

However, some of these questions might help you identify potentially harmful behaviors and determine whether you or a loved one has a substance abuse problem or addiction that needs professional treatment. If you answer “yes” to two or more of these questions, you or your loved one could have a problem with alcohol or drugs.

  1. Has someone close to you commented on your use?
  2. Do you find yourself preoccupied with the thoughts of drinking or using drugs?
  3. Is your home life unhappy because of your alcohol or drug use?
  4. Are you in jeopardy of losing your job or family because of use?
  5. Do you need to drink or use to have fun or to enhance your social life?
  6. Do you hide your use or lie about the amount you drink or use?
  7. Do you drink or use while you are alone?
  8. Do you suffer from loss of memory as a result of drinking / drug use?
  9. Do you drink or use to cope with feelings of pain, anger, anxiety or depression?
  10. Do you take more medication, or feel the need for more than is prescribed?
  11. Do you go to multiple physicians to get the same medications?
