New Haven Mayor Toni Harp, Health Director Dr. Byron Kennedy and State's Attorney Patrick Griffin join Turnbridge officials for a ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the launch of its new outpatient treatment program.

In the wake of Connecticut's growing opioid epidemic, an Elm City residential rehab facility said this week it has opened a new outpatient addiction treatment program at its Orange Street clinic.

New Haven-based Turnbridge, which for years has specialized in treating young adults from around the country, said the expansion will make its services available to "anyone within commuting distance."

Turnbridge said it has also begun accepting Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield as an in-network provider, a move that will increase access to treatment.

"Making our high-quality clinical care accessible to more people right here in our New Haven home is a way of giving back to a community that has done so much for us and our clients," CEO David Vieau said in a statement.

The community-based outpatient program is part of a growing trend in the addiction services industry, providing an alternative to an extended stay in rehab and allowing patients to work or attend school while receiving treatment.
