Starlight Military Program

We offer a detoxification and rehabilitation program specifically designed for military personnel.


Stonington Institute offers inpatient detoxification services using evidenced-based treatment modalities at its 26-acre campus in rural North Stonington, CT. The Detox Program is designed to help clients stabilize from the effects of drugs and alcohol in a medically-supervised setting. Our goal is to promote client safety during this process, then help them better understand the disease of addiction and develop a long-term recovery plan. Treatment takes place in our unlocked, campus-style therapeutic environment.

The Detox Program is led by a Clinical Director, with a licensed clinical staff and a dedicated discharge care coordinator. After completing the detox protocol, every client is introduced to a 12-step model of recovery. Clients who are accepted for admission to our detox unit have a history of heavy and/or prolonged use of alcohol and/or other drugs and are in need of detoxification in a voluntary, medically-monitored setting. Clients may also have a secondary mental health diagnosis.

For those who are ready for a step down from inpatient detox, we offer day treatment through an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) or a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP). Lodging is available through the Inn at Trails Corner. These levels of care are designed to provide support and treatment for those who are able to attend programming during the day, then return back to their community or to a sober living environment.

The Starlight Military Program is a co-occurring residential rehabilitation program that is dedicated to providing a stigma-free treatment environment specifically designed to meet the needs of active duty personnel in all branches of military service.

The treatment team understands that military life can be stressful to service members and their families, and can result in the types of disorders that require specialized treatment and unique recovery programs. Starlight treatment staff utilize recovery methods that are focused on helping you develop solid strategies to promote healthy decision-making related to substance use, and education that supports permanent lifestyle changes aimed at maintaining long-term mental health recovery.
