The Midwestern Connecticut Council of Alcoholism (MCCA) has opened an addiction treatment clinic at 140 John St. in Bridgeport.
The clinic will offer outpatient treatment for alcohol and drug addiction, as well as mental health disorders including psychiatric reviews for medication management, assessments, and co-occurring disorders. Victor Pittman, previously MCCA’s director at its New Haven clinic, was named program director at the new location.
The Bridgeport clinic is the second Fairfield County-based operation for MCCA, which also operates a Danbury facility that provides inpatient treatment, medically monitored detoxification and transitional housing for recovering addicts; the organization also runs the family support program How to Cope in Danbury. Elsewhere in Connecticut, MCCA runs outpatient clinics in Derby, New Haven, New Milford, Torrington and Waterbury, plus long-term residential treatment centers in Kent and Sharon.
