Treatment Options

Medically Monitored High-Intensity Inpatient Services (formerly Residential Detoxification) (Danbury CT)

 The State licensed, ASAM 3.7 Level of care programs are an organized service delivered by medical and nursing professionals, which provides for 24-hour evaluation and withdrawal management in a permanent facility with inpatient beds. Services are delivered under a defined set of physician-approved policies and physician-monitored procedures or clinical protocols.

The process of withdrawal management includes not only attenuation of the physiological and psychological features of withdrawal, but also interrupting the momentum of habitual compulsive use in individuals with addiction. Thus, an individual admitted for withdrawal management is also receiving professional services that can serve to interrupt the cycle of use, enable an individual to establish the first day(s) of abstinence and be evaluated for the need for further care. This level of care provides the opportunity to engage an individual in what will hopefully be sustained recovery. MCCA offers two specialized units to assure safe and medical-monitored care.

The Withdrawal Management Unit (formerly Residential Detoxification) is a State licensed, ASAM 3.7 WM Level of care medical facility designed to help individuals safely detoxify from alcohol and substances. Our patients are assessed and monitored by licensed medical and clinical staff. Approved medication is administered within a structured, educational, and individualized treatment program. Self-help and counselor led groups are offered, as well as, access to recovery coaching. Aftercare and next step coordination begins from the moment a patient arrives on the unit.  


McDonough House – Medically Monitored Intensive Inpatient Services


The Intensive Inpatient Unit (McDonough House) is a State licensed, ASAM 3.7 R Level of care inpatient facility designed to stabilize individuals experiencing post-acute withdrawal and require further medical monitor care. Aftercare and next step coordination generally include safe transfers to either a medium level of care residential facility or an Intensive Outpatient program.
