Located in Danbury, Connecticut, Blue Sky Behavioral Health is a state-licensed and accredited treatment center. With a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) that offers a residential component and outpatient services provided, Blue Sky has been treating the greater Danbury community for over 10 years.
Accommodation and Food
The residences at Blue Sky are apartment-homes that are specially rented to clients, three or four at a time. Women and men are divided into their own apartments, and clients sleep in private or semi-private rooms. All furniture is provided, as are linens and laundry facilities.
Food is not included in the cost, and money for this is given to either the client directly, or to the client’s assigned life coach. Grocery shopping is completed with roommates and the supervising life coach, who also assists with meal planning and making appropriate choices.
Treatment and Staff
Clients attend clinical treatment Monday to Friday as part of the PHP. All transport to and from treatment, shopping and any other necessary excursions is provided. Upon admission, clients are drug screened and provided with individualized treatment plans. A life coach works with all clients and is available 24/7 for emotional and practical support, and also coaches clients through paying bills and looking for work. Medically monitored detox is not available, but medication management can be offered for those requiring dual diagnosis support. Clients must also meet with their prescribing psychiatrist weekly.
Treatment length varies, but typically lasts at least 30 days. Blue Sky offers a variety of treatment modalities, which include individual therapy twice a week, and daily group therapy. Introduction to 12-step programs is also facilitated, with meetings occurring daily and attendance highly suggested. Individual therapy utilizes DBT techniques, and is performed by licensed therapists. Group sessions are gender-specific, and focus on trauma, relapse prevention, and gender-specific issues.
The outpatient clinical services range from single-session individual therapy and medication management, to an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). This consists of up to five hours of treatment, two or three times a week. The multi-disciplinary treatment practices are incorporated through group and individual sessions.
Blue Sky also provides Exposure Response Prevention (ERP), which is a unique, one-on-one desensitization program. This is only offered once the client has at least a week of sobriety and no more cravings, and is performed by a licensed therapist. Not for everybody, it is only offered if the client’s clinical team believes it will be useful.
Blue Sky Behavioral Health provides substance abuse treatment in an unusual setting. With clients allowed more autonomy than most residential facilities, those at Blue Sky can take walks or complete chores alone. While food and medication is not included, the low cost of housing and treatment means that clients will enjoy a comprehensive treatment experience at a price that won’t break the bank.
