The Addiction Services Division is a component of Connecticut Valley Hospital; a State of Connecticut non-profit facility operated by the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS), which provides 24-hour inpatient services. The Addiction Services Division offers inpatient services located in Middletown and Hartford. Both campuses provide two levels of care:  Acute detoxification provides care for individuals who are experiencing acute withdrawal from substances. Intensive treatment is available for those who need structure and education in order to start their recovery process.

The Middletown Campus consists of one 20 bed acute detoxification unit, two 30-bed male rehabilitation units and one 30-bed female rehabilitation unit.  The Hartford Campus consists of one 21-bed acute detoxification unit and one 21-bed co-ed rehabilitation unit. Both campuses also provide screening services to determine the most appropriate level of care.

The Addiction Services Division uses evidence based practices and a holistic approach to assist people receiving services in identifying and exploring issues that may be barriers to their recovery. Services provided are trauma-sensitive and gender-specific. Medication assisted treatment is also offered to appropriate candidates.
