Helping others isn't just what we do. It's who we are. We are one of Connecticut's leading providers of addiction and mental health services. Accredited by the Joint Commission, Rushford is nationally recognized for delivering outstanding prevention, treatment and recovery programs.

Changing lives, saving lives. Every year, right here in Connecticut, we meet more than 6,600 children, adults and families dealing with the devastating effects of addiction and mental health issues. Many benefit highly from our prevention and wellness programs, while more than half receive treatment in our evidence-based outpatient and residential programs, including our remarkable Stonegate residential treatment center for adolescent boys.

A Hartford HealthCare Center of Excellence, and a leader in substance use prevention and treatment for over 40 years, Rushford has been recognized by the Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services for its research-based treatment models and proven prevention initiatives.
