Families in Recovery Program (FIRP)
Families in Recovery (FIRP) is an inpatient program in Norwalk, CT for pregnant and parenting women with children only. FIRP has been in existence since 1994 and is unique in our region. It is the only inpatient treatment program exclusively for pregnant and parenting women in Fairfield County. Mothers can have up to two children ages birth to 10 years old, and FIRP is the only inpatient program in Connecticut where mothers can bring two children up to the age of 10 into the program with them. FIRP is gender and trauma sensitive with an emphasis on individual and family needs. Throughout treatment, mothers are supported in managing challenges related to substance use disorder (SUD), building, enhancing and maintaining life skills, peer-to-peer support and accessing resources to provide safe, nurturing homes for their children and themselves as they prepare to transition back to the community.

Liberation House, located in Stamford, provides an inpatient treatment program for men with a capacity to serve 65 individuals at a time. Duration of treatment can be up to 90 days. During this time Recoverees engage with staff to provide them with basic information regarding their substance use disorder and recovery; residency and employment status is also discussed throughout treatment. Immediately upon their admission Recoverees identify their goals and objectives and craft an individual service plan to be used as a guide throughout their treatment stay. Recoverees meet weekly with a skilled counselor for individual counseling. During these sessions, Recoverees also report on progress of their goals and identify growth and changes. Recoverees may also be engaged in both Mental Health and Medication Assisted Recovery (MAR) programs. Additionally, family therapy and group counseling are available. Group and individual counseling focuses on building and sustaining daily life skills inclusive of transitioning to employment, securing stable housing, and adapting to a new normal: a stable routine without substance use.
