About Comprehensive Treatment Centers

Comprehensive Treatment Centers (CTCs) provide opioid use disorder treatment for adults age 18 and older of all genders. CTCs offer detoxification from substances such as heroin, prescription painkillers, and other opioids, as well as alcohol. Treatment at a CTC is in the form of outpatient therapy, allowing patients to receive substance use disorder care that is convenient to them without much disruption to their lives. Unlike traditional outpatient treatment centers, CTCs use medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to help ease the discomfort of withdrawal symptoms that come from detoxification. MAT can involve medication such as methadone or buprenorphine under the guidance of a healthcare professional. Along with detoxification, CTCs offer individual and group therapy sessions. Combining the appropriate medication and counseling for each individual allows for comprehensive care that can lead to long-term recovery. Each patient has their own treatment team to ensure that they receive personalized care that is unique to them.

What Is Medication-Assisted Treatment?

Detoxification from substances can be an uncomfortable process due to withdrawal symptoms. Medication-assisted treatment involves medications that have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to ensure a more comfortable detoxification process from opioids or alcohol. When used under the guidance of a healthcare professional, medications such as methadone and buprenorphine are proven safe and effective for treating substance use disorders. Before beginning medication-assisted treatment, patients receive an assessment to determine their past and current drug use, mental health history, and medical history. Each patient’s care team will use the information gathered to form a personalized treatment plan, including which medication will be more beneficial and what type of therapies the patient should participate in. Along with a treatment plan, the care team will also develop a continuing care plan to help ensure lasting recovery.

Benefits of Medication-Assisted Treatment

The mental and physical symptoms of withdrawal can make completing detoxification uncomfortable. The assistance of medication can help decrease these symptoms, making it more likely that patients remain in the process and enter recovery. Medications used in MAT also help patients focus on their recovery goals, stay engaged in group therapy, and begin a healthier lifestyle. Patients in MAT have shown that they are less likely to seek opioids and other substances. This results in less risk for financial trouble, legal trouble, infectious diseases, and violence. Patients also benefit from individual and group therapy. Individual sessions help patients understand the root cause of their struggles with opioid use disorder and address past trauma. In group therapy, MAT patients can learn coping skills and relapse prevention techniques while being supported by other individuals they can relate to. Each patient’s care team is dedicated to helping them process their past, find positive ways to cope, and develop a healthier lifestyle free of substance use.
