Who is Waterstone?

Waterstone opened its doors in Madison, Connecticut with the specific purpose of offering Medication Assisted Treatment and Substance Use Disorder therapy to the community. As a private practice, we have been able to expand our services since then to also offer psychotherapy services for many issues beyond substance use including trauma, depression, anxiety and life transitions. With a team of medical doctors and APRN's who treat addiction and licensed therapists we have been able to effectively treat and help thousands of patients since 2015. Since then, we have opened two additional offices in Groton and Hamden.
