The Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) was enacted to prevent sexual assaults and harassment in residential facilities housing individuals under the control of various components of the judicial system. PREA's provisions apply to both client/client and client/staff interactions. Renaissance has a zero tolerance policy toward all forms of sexual abuse and harassment in our facilities and programs. To report an act of sexual abuse or harassment, individuals should contact either the Program Director or Renaissance's PREA Coordinator, Grace Gaynor (203 336-5225 x2108).

  • Renaissance West Drug Treatment Program

    Renaissance's Waterbury West facility houses a Level III.5 intermediate/long term residential treatment program. Located in Waterbury, this program serves male clients, eighteen years and older referred by the Connecticut Court Support Services Division and Federal Probation.

    The Renaissance West Drug Treatment Program offers a wide range of services to each client, including individual, family, and group counseling, psycho-educational programming, life skills, self-help meetings and formal referrals to community agencies based on individual needs.

    Working closely with the legal system, this program employs a three-phase approach aimed at gradually returning clients to the community. Length of stay is individualized, with the average being three months. The goal of the program is to return clients to the community with housing, employment and an aftercare plan.
