Specialization

  • Family Program

    Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
  • 12-Step

    The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.

ABOUT HORIZONS

Horizons is operated by Recovery Network of Programs, Inc. (RNP), a nonprofit founded in 1972 to provide substance abuse, mental health, and housing support for the Greater Bridgeport (Conn.) community. It offers numerous residential, outpatient, and medication management facilities in the area.

Located two miles southwest of central Bridgeport, Horizons is a short-term residential facility for men and women struggling with substance abuse. Medical detox is not available on-site, but is provided at other facilities operated by RNP.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

According to the facility’s website, the treatment program at Horizons appears to be quite traditional. The center facilitates 12-step participation for its residents. Horizons also offers evidence-based treatment methods such as individual, group, and family therapy; motivational interviewing (MI); cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT); and the Seeking Safety model, which integrates treatment for addiction and trauma. Each client also receives case management services to coordinate their care.

Horizons aims to prepare its residents for long-term recovery in their communities, and as such, each client receives a personalized aftercare plan that might contain referrals to resources such as housing and mental health services and outpatient programs. There’s also an alumni group, which all graduating residents are encouraged to join.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

The center’s website notes RNP’s senior management team includes an MD and a licensed clinical social worker. At the time of writing, no information is available regarding the specific credentials of the treatment staff at the Horizons facility.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

Horizons’ housing and treatment is located in a modest but homelike facility in a mostly residential area of Bridgeport.

REVIEWS

Rehabs.com has yet to receive feedback for this facility from alumni, loved ones, or staff members.

At the time of this writing, review coverage of this facility elsewhere online was also scarce. On Google, Regional Network Programs has only one review of two out of five stars. The reviewer did not leave any accompanying commentary to give their review context. [1]

Similarly, on RNP's Facebook page, which the facility can manage, only a single five-star review was visible.[2] The Facebook page is also for the entire organization.

Additionally, eight staff members who left reviews about RNP on Glassdoor (rather than the Horizons facility in particular) at the time of this writing gave mostly positive reviews, with ratings averaging 3.7 out of five stars to date.[3] Among the positive reviews, an anonymous former employee wrote: “The agency does great work to help clients live a drug free life with support on every level.” Another wrote: “They are geared towards growth and are constantly evolving. You feel like you are part of a team and your input is always important.”

Yet one reviewer described the organization as “a terrible environment to spend 40 hours per week,” adding: “Clinicians are pressured to compromise basic ethical principals in order to satisfy demands of upper management.”
