Best kept secret along the shoreline and a "Diamond in the Rough", without question, life changing!!! If you are battling the disease of alcoholism or substance abuse, I strongly recommend serious consideration to Recovery Services of Connecticut in the town of Madison. This is a 'boutique" type of Intensive Outpatient Program that is carefully screened to provide a successful experience providing licensed and professional care. All 6 of the clinicians offer their own style, genuine care, and approach to each client with one common objective, Sustainable Recovery" I have completed the 12 week program and am confident with the tools, resources, and professional help provided, will maintain sobriety, "One Day at a Time". The next step will be entering into the ERG (Extended Recovery Group) program that enhances the probability to maintain sobriety.

RSCT continues to provide the services and guidance for recovery that exceed expectations. The staff demonstrates a dedicated commitment to their place in the continuum of care for patients seeking counseling and enlightenment as they continue on the path to sustainable sobriety. The program has offered me multiples paths to enlightenment and provided a multitude of tools to not only maintain my own sobriety, but to also carry it forward to others who suffer from addiction. All of this is done with thoughtful insight and, most importantly, by listening to each and every one of the patients seeking the tools necessary for sustained sobriety and a better way of life.

RSCT is by far the best intensive outpatient program i have ever been to. Without their support, knowledge and guidance i’m not sure where i would be right now. These people care about you and your recovery truly and genuinely. I’ve also met and continue to talk with other addicts from this program that i will stay in contact with forever hopefully. I highly recommend to anyone who is still sick and suffering from addiction to give RSCT a try, come join our family
