ABOUT MCCA TRINITY GLEN KENT LONG-TERM RESIDENTIAL TREATMENT FOR WOMEN
Nestled in the hills of Kent, Conn., Trinity Glen offers long-term residential care for women dealing with chronic addiction. It's one of the 58.6 percent of rehabs in Connecticut that offer some dedicated programming for adult women, and one of the 14.8 percent that offer residential treatment lasting longer than 30 days. Medical detox is not available on-site.
The facility is part of the Midwestern Connecticut Council of Alcoholism, Inc. (MCCA), a network of substance misuse rehab centers offering residential and outpatient services at several locations in the region. MCCA runs a similar program for men at the Trinity Glen men’s program in nearby Sharon.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Designed to treat women with a history of relapse, the goal of the facility's treatment is to help women become responsible community members, achieve abstinence, and prepared to transition into a sober-living facility after treatment.
Residents of Trinity Glen's structured living environment will participate in individual and group therapy, recreation therapy to develop sober interests, and weekly community meetings. Residents also have the option of attending Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meetings nightly.
Trinity Glen emphasizes work therapy, with 20 to 30 hours per week spent developing and enhancing work skills. The program is designed to contribute to clients' "sense of responsibility and self-esteem,” and positions Trinity Glen among the 39 percent of Connecticut-based facilities that offer employment counseling or training for clients.
Continuing care planning is offered upon graduation, though the facility doesn't currently specify what it entails.
Trinity Glen is CARF-accredited and employs program directors and state-licensed and certified counselors. Staff also includes a medical needs facilitator, work therapy supervisor, and monitors.

Trinity Glen's 11-bed facility offers semi-private dormitory rooms and meeting rooms, in an attractive, old-fashioned building surrounded by trees.
