Bellingham Comprehensive Treatment Center View Specialties

Bellingham Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC), located in Bellingham, Washington, offers medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for adults age 18 and older who are struggling with opioid addictions. MAT is a comprehensive approach to opioid addiction treatment that incorporates a combination of prescription medication and counseling.
Research supports the effectiveness of MAT in helping people achieve recovery from opioid addictions. Our outpatient MAT program at Bellingham CTC builds on the services offered by traditional methadone clinics. Depending on individual patient needs, adults who seek medication-assisted treatment with us may receive a prescription for either methadone or buprenorphine as they work with our treatment teams and engage in counseling sessions as needed.
By using both medication and therapy, MAT can help you lay a strong foundation for long-term recovery. Additionally, both methadone and buprenorphine can be effective and safe for short- and long-term use when monitored by trained professionals. The prescription medications we offer at Bellingham CTC can help reduce the distressing withdrawal symptoms and intense cravings that may occur when a person stops using opioids. Therefore, patients who receive prescription medications through our MAT program may be able to function with greater ease as they work on achieving and maintaining recovery.
At our CTC, we provide individual and group therapies designed to help you make lasting positive changes in your life that can support your ongoing recovery efforts. Our individual and group therapy sessions provide safe settings where you can share your experiences with others, learn valuable communication and stress management skills, and gain a deeper understanding of opioid addiction and recovery. At our leading addiction treatment center, you can expect to receive compassionate care that follows an individualized treatment plan.
When you begin treatment at Bellingham CTC, our team will work with you to complete a thorough assessment of your needs, which helps ensure that we can provide effective and personalized services throughout your time with us. To determine which medication may be right for you, you’ll work with our professionals as they evaluate your history of drug use, your current drug use, and the state of your health. During this time, you’ll be able to discuss the different medication options and better understand the effects and benefits of each medication.
We want you to feel supported at each step of your unique treatment journey, and we will offer expert clinical care as well as case management services throughout your time with us. Our qualified treatment team includes certified alcohol and drug counselors, licensed practical nurses, and doctors.
