Aware Recovery Care (ARC) provides long-term in-home addiction treatment (IHAT) for those suffering from substance abuse addiction in Connecticut and New Hampshire. Whether before, after, in conjunction with, or in lieu of more traditional treatments, Aware Recovery Care delivers a home based continuum of care that is best for those that cannot go away, or for those in need of a home transition. Based upon the idea similar to that of the visiting nurse model for medicine, Aware Recovery Care provides a visiting multidisciplinary team specially trained in working within the family system for each client. Our clients learn the new skills and daily habits they must have to lead lives free of alcohol and/or drugs – in the comfort and privacy of the homes and communities where they live.
Aware Recovery Care Approach
Aware Recovery Care provides private, personalized care for people throughout Connecticut and New Hampshire seeking truly individualized drug and/or alcohol addiction rehab treatment while living in their own homes. For those currently receiving inpatient care, Aware Recovery Care provides a seamless home-transition while ensuring the home is a healthy and supportive environment so that our clients have the best possible chance at lasting health, and recovery.
Extensive research has shown that receiving medical care and monitored support in the home promotes faster recovery, improves outcomes, and increases the patient’s overall physical and psychological well- being.
Healing at home with professional and healthy support allows for comfort and privacy while maximizing clinical outcomes. For that reason, we deliver our program to our clients wherever they live – protecting privacy and anonymity. Being an addiction treatment program that is delivered to our clients at home and in the real world, we’re able to help them continue in their jobs, in school, or with their loved ones. Aware Recovery Care clients experience the freedom and independence of outpatient care with the intense diagnostic curriculum and accountability of inpatient care. Clients are able to learn and practice the real world skills needed to maintain recovery while remaining amongst family and friends and avoiding the oftentimes difficult return home from a residential treatment facility or sober house. Clients are encouraged to access wellness programs such as yoga, meditation and therapeutic massage, as well as to continue working with their own doctors and therapists, local providers and family and friends —many of whom act as their primary caregiver and as key members of the support system that will carry our clients long beyond the realm of ARC’s term of care.

Understanding the Family System
Aware Recovery Care provides the families of our clients with their own family liaison. This person serves as an advocate and personal guide for our clients’ loved ones as they progress through the year with their son, daughter, sister, brother, mother, or father. The family liaisons are in constant contact with our clients’ Aware Recovery Care multi-disciplinary teams, and communicates with the families and loved ones to ensure that all parties’ needs are being met in the healthiest way possible. Family liaisons support the clients and their family members and loved ones through face-to-face meetings facilitated by Diana Clark JD, MA and other Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists (LMFT) in Connecticut and New Hampshire. It is through these sessions that the clients and their families find common ground and work together to recover.
