Drug Abuse Rehabilitation and Recovery Information

One of the major benefits of heading to Portland, Connecticut for the purposes of rehabilitation is that you have a wide range of high quality facilities to choose from depending on your needs. One of those facilities takes the form of the Rushford Center, Inc. Intermediate Residential Unit. Located within the heart of downtown Portland, it offers dual diagnosis treatment for people with co-occurring mental disorders along with traditional substance abuse disorders.

It also offers residential long term inpatient treatment services, alternative treatment options (for someone looking for recovery options that do not involve a traditional 12-step program) and holistic rehabilitation treatment. Residential long-term inpatient treatment is commonly defined as any stay ranging from 60 to 90 to 120 days.

The facility also offers a wide range of different options regarding payment. In addition to cash payments, the center also accepts many private health insurance options and plans that were purchased under the Affordable Care Act. You may also qualify for a sliding pay scale that will see the total amount of money you're required to pay adjusted depending on a number of factors like your current employment status, the total amount of assets that you have and more.


Whether you're visiting a friend who is in rehab or are looking for a place to stay after your own program has finished, Portland has a large number of options available for you to pursue. Thanks to the town's small population, a number of boutique options are available for people looking for a much more intimate experience in that regard.

Employment Opportunities

Once your rehabilitation program has ended, you have access to a large number of different employment opportunities just by being in the Portland, Connecticut area. Many positions are available with the local government, for example, as the City of Portland and the Portland Public School District both act as the top employers in the area.
