Welcome to Authentic Recovery – Mental Health & Addiction Services

Authentic Recovery is dedicated to providing individualized, effective treatment to adults, children and families in a private practice setting.  We share a common belief that all people should have access to quality mental healthcare and addiction treatment.

We see patients in Connecticut in our two offices located in Torrington and Waterbury.  We accept most private insurance and all forms of HUSKY. We may also be able to see those clients whose insurance we do not accept by utilizing out of network benefits.  We will work with you to determine if and how we can accept your insurance.  If you opt not to use insurance or not able to use insurance, we accept cash, credit cards and checks. Please contact us to inquire about fees per service.

Authentic Recovery is unique in that we provide a wide variety of specialty mental health and addiction services all within one practice. Our clinicians are familiar with the wide range of human emotions, experiences, patterns of thought and habits that can create turmoil in your life. Each clinician can be trusted to use a person-centered approach to collaboratively guide each client toward positive and lasting change.
