Dear Waterstone Community,

We sincerely hope that you and your loved ones remain safe as our nation works to contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus. As a trusted ally in outpatient addiction therapy and integrated psychotherapy, we’d also like to address any concerns you may have regarding our ongoing treatment programs at Waterstone during this crisis. While it is crucial for each of us to adhere to active precautionary measures, like you, we have not lost sight of the massive impact that addiction continues to have on our country. For this reason, we will continue to provide personalized cutting-edge treatment programs to our patients and clients with increased vigilance towards patient safety that includes disinfecting procedures that go well beyond active CDC-recommended mitigation strategies. While we continue to provide in-person one-on-one therapy sessions that are staggered to avoid unnecessary contact with other patients, we are also happy to report that our new “Telehealth” system is a well-functioning solution. This system is providing patients remote access (via Zoom) to our team for consultation and group therapy sessions. Simply call our office at 203-245-0412 to set up an appointment or make a referral. Please feel free to contact us with any concerns you may encounter. It is our goal to retain a robust dialogue with you and for all of us to emerge from this challenge together. Until then, we will keep you informed as new information becomes available and we wish you and your families our most sincere best wishes during this time.

Please reach out if you need us. We are here to help!

Welcome to Waterstone Counseling Centers

Compassion. Hope. Trust. Respect. Strength. Recovery

Since 2015, Waterstone Counseling Centers has been treating individuals dealing with addiction and co-occurring challenges. It was founded by medical and psychological providers who are driven by a passion for addiction treatment. Our staff of compassionate and licensed professionals are on hand to care for your individual treatment needs and goals to address a variety of issues including anxiety, depression or substance use. We incorporate best treatment model practices, expert addiction treatment knowledge and a thorough understanding of the overwhelming factors individuals face during recovery to create an individualized recovery plan. We understand that finding the right treatment center or therapist can be difficult. At Waterstone, everyone who reaches out to us for treatment or advice about treatment options is valued and made to feel safe during initial inquiry.  We ensure that each potential client understands all the recovery options open to them and determine if and how our treatment program may be the best fit for their goals.

The Fresh Start Treatment Program

The gold-standard for care in treating opiate addiction is Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT). Waterstone Counseling Center has combined this standard of care with the philosophy of our organization which has resulted in compassionate and cutting-edge treatment available to anyone in need. Our “Fresh Start Treatment Program” is unique in that it offers comprehensive, multidisciplinary and fully immersive recovery treatment with the flexibility of an outpatient setting. This allows our clients to address their life responsibilities such as employment and childcare while receiving the best possible care. We apply goal-oriented and integrated psychotherapy with the aim of helping our clients create sustainable change. Our multidisciplinary team of highly trained physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, patient coordinators and case managers collaborate to provide our clients with the comprehensive care that is required to achieve stabilization in early remission and then long-term recovery.

Because opiate addiction is life threatening, chronic, and resilient, our model is designed uniquely to provide as much access to services as is possible in an outpatient setting including: ongoing group and/or individual psychotherapy, regular meetings with the prescribing physician, medication monitoring, access to specialty trauma therapy, and weekly urinalysis.

Service Region

Waterstone Counseling Centers serve New London, New Haven and Middlesex Counties, Connecticut. The medication component of our MAT program requires a regional service area, however, our unique Integrated Psychotherapy services are available to a non-local community through telehealth solutions and our interactive education platform.

Change Is Possible

We seek to create an atmosphere of trust, respect, compassion, and reliability with each client we care for in our treatment program. Each person is presented with unique challenges and life stories. We are motivated to meet each client exactly where they are and grant them the respect and dignity they deserve.

We Can Help


HELP Is On The Way

We are unique in our capacity to develop individualized substance use therapy that combines proven cutting-edge medicine with professional, compassionate psychotherapy in a welcoming environment. We are employing telemedicine for safety during the COVID-19 crisis.



Medication-assisted addiction therapy (MAT) strategies have been demonstrated to be more effective than therapy-alone and medication-alone strategies to treat addiction by a growing body of empirical evidence. Our approach is evidence-based and  highly flexible for custom tailored care.


LONG-TERM  Outcomes

Our highly personalized MAT program is designed to tailor the best treatment option in a healing environment that is conducive to providing our clients long term success. Our emphasis on whole-person healing is reflected in our home-like environments and  staff-client relations.



It is our philosophy that every individual is unique and has unique challenges. Our clinicians and counselors believe firmly in what they do, but mostly they believe that our programs work. We do not simply deploy clinical protocols to our clients, we provide individualized caring solutions.
