MCCA Opens 7th Outpatient Clinic In Bridgeport

MCCA is proud to announce the opening of our newest outpatient addiction treatment facility in Bridgeport. The clinic, located at 140 John Street, will provide treatment for alcohol and drug addiction, as well as mental health disorders.

Program Director, Victor Pittman, who previously ran the agency's New Haven clinic, brings a wealth of experience to the new Bridgeport facility. Pittman said, "Our goal is to increase access for all who are seeking quality recovery services."

   
Furthering our Mission With Partnerships & Grants
 
As the opiate crisis continues to escalate in our state, MCCA has been proactive in seeking opportunities to expand and improve treatment options at this time of increased need. We are pleased to announce that we are moving forward with Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) for opiate and alcohol addiction. Clients at MCCA can now be referred to Beyond Urgent Care for MAT (Vivitrol and Suboxone) in their North Haven, New Milford, and Bethel walk-in clinics. In the coming months, MCCA will also be expanding MAT at the Danbury Outpatient Clinic with the assistance of a DHMAS grant and a partnership with the Greater Danbury Health Center.  
 
MCCA was also recently awarded a grant to participate in the Treatment Pathways Program in Torrington. The goal of this program is to expand options for pretrial diversion while ensuring public safety.
MCCA Will Be Live at the CCAR Recovery Walk on Sept. 23rd.

Please join us for a live Facebook video event at 11am on Saturday, September 23rd at the Annual CCAR Recovery Walk. MCCA's Peer Counselor, Stephen Matos will be discussing the positive impact that recovery can have on someone with a gambling addiction and those around them at the walk.
Next Session of How to Cope Starts on October 5th
Education & Empowerment for Families Impacted by Addiction 

Substance use disorders affect individuals and families regardless of race, gender or economic status.  The first step towards positive change often comes when family members begin to take charge of their own lives. 

How to Cope provides the support and tools to help participants start to make those changes.  Groups are small and confidential and run for seven consecutive weeks on Thursday evenings in our Danbury location.
