Retreat Behavioral Health opened its doors to a new treatment center in New Haven Thursday. Officials cut the ribbon on the new facility at noon.
There are 80 beds on the 53,000 square foot campus on Ella Grasso Boulevard. The center is staffed with mental health and substance abuse counselors to help people break the cycle of addiction.
In Connecticut alone, there were more than 950 opioid related fatalities in 2017.
“The primary diagnosis when people come in will be substance use disorder, but we have a holistic approach. We treat the whole person.
About 80% of the people who come in have mental health disorders. If you don’t treat those, nothing changes in their lives.“– Peter Schorr, Retreat Behavioral Health, President and Founder
