Day Treatment at Stonington Institute

We recognize that everyone’s journey to recovery is different. At Stonington Institute’s Trails Corner Recovery Center, our experienced team designs individualized services focusing on each patient’s needs.

Outpatient programs are designed for those who are ready for a step down from inpatient detox, or who are in need of day treatment and support and are able to return home (or to a sober living environment) after programming hours. To help meet the needs of this population, Trails Corner Recovery Center offers the following services:

Treatment modalities can include milieu treatment (the use of therapeutic communities), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and individual, group, and family therapy.

We also offer:

  • Cognitive Processing Therapy
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing
  • Art therapy
  • Martial Arts
  • Yoga
  • Nutrition
  • Music therapy
  • Experiential learning opportunities
    • Vocational Education
    • Spirituality

Our Outpatient Substance Abuse Program

The Trails Corner Recovery Program offers Partial Hospitalization (PHP), Intensive Outpatient (IOP) and MAT (Suboxone and Vivitrol) services six hours a day, Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Individuals can commute to the program or reside at the Inn at Trails Corner during treatment. The Trails Corner treatment program draws from medical, psychological and traditional self-help approaches in treating behavioral health disorders and conditions. We also recognize the overwhelming importance of the client’s motivation to achieve and maintain sobriety. Through education, professional intervention and effective social rehabilitation, it is our belief that everyone can achieve meaningful and long-term recovery.

To be eligible for outpatient day treatment programs at Stonington Institute’s Trails Corner Recovery Center, patients must:

  • Be medically stable
  • Have had a recent bout of acute alcohol and/or drug abuse with a clearly documented history of excessive use of alcohol and/or drugs, and be currently unable to control this use
  • Meet the Level II.5, II.1 or I ASAM criteria for partial hospitalization treatment
  • Have a condition indicating that the client has restorative potential, and would benefit from a PHP/IOP chemical dependency treatment program
  • Have a goal of changing behavior that could not successfully be accomplished in a less intensive treatment setting

Why Choose a PHP?

A Partial Hospitalization Program is a full-time day program in which you will receive treatment services throughout the day without staying overnight. Highly-structured, but less so than residential treatment, a PHP is a great option for those with familial or community obligations that hinder around-the-clock inpatient stay. A PHP is also an option for those who are transitioning from residential treatment facilities. 

A PHP usually provides treatment all day long before allowing patients to return home afterwards.

Why Choose an IOP?

Intensive outpatient treatment at a part-time day program can be beneficial to those exploring treatment options for the first time or those transitioning from residential and PHP levels of care. This type of care includes many of the same treatments as PHP and residential. This can include group and individual therapies, as well as recreational and support groups, too. 

Patients attend an IOP for a few hours a day for a few days throughout the week, making intensive outpatient the least restrictive type of treatment, while also offering structure and evidence-based therapies.
