About Connecticut Valley Hospital Blue Hills Substance Services

Blue Hills provides services to walk-ins and to referrals from family members, hospital ERs and inpatient units, area substance abuse and mental health clinics, community agencies, case managers, courts, probation, and other sources.
Our Admissions Office, staffed by nurses and physicians 24/7, conducts an initial screening to determine the most appropriate level of care and treatment. Triage may be to our Acute or Rehabilitation unit, or to our Middletown campus or to a different facility if we do not provide or have bed availability of the required care.
Blue Hills provides thorough assessments and individualized treatment planning through a comprehensive team of caring professionals in a welcoming and safe setting. Our goal is to stabilize, build coping skills and help clients move into the recovery zone.
