Virtual treatment available: DMA outpatient programs can also be accessed via online telehealth services.
Our Stamford, Connecticut, residential treatment program provides 24-hour care for patients in need of structure and support. Our mental health center is convenient to Greenwich, Darien, Southport, Fairfield, Norwalk, Wilton and other Fairfield County locations. We also have a Fairfield mental health facility for higher level of care to teens and adolescents. Our homes are warm and intimate spaces that provide a serene place where patients can focus on their recovery. Treatment is customized and employs a variety of evidence-based modalities, including cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and more. Patients are also encouraged to make the mind-body connection by finding activities that promote healing and feelings of self-worth, as well as how food can play an important role in well being.
The School Support Program is offered to young patients, where an education liaison supervises and supports them through their schoolwork. The education liaison also collaborates with the patient’s therapist to ensure they have the right environment in place for learning, which will in turn help them reintegrate into their school after treatment.
Insurances we accept at this location include but are not limited to Anthem Blue Cross, Cigna, Beacon, Unicare, and Kaiser. Please remember that the insurances we accept change frequently. Our insurance team will verify your coverage.
