Calais Comprehensive Treatment Center View Specialties

Calais Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC) in Calais, Maine, is a premier provider of medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid addiction. Calais CTC offers services for adults age 18 and older. All genders are welcome. Our outpatient addiction treatment clinic provides a medication-assisted treatment program that includes both medications and therapies that are appropriate for those who are struggling with addictions to prescription opioids such as OxyContin and morphine or illicit drugs like heroin.
MAT is a highly researched addiction treatment method that uses FDA-approved prescription medications to help those who are seeking recovery assistance. At Calais CTC, we may prescribe methadone or Suboxone while also treating patients with evidence-based therapies. By combining these medications with individual and group counseling, we are able to create the most effective treatment plan for each individual. Both the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) recommend MAT for the treatment of opioid addiction. MAT reduces the severe side effects of withdrawal, making it easier for patients to stay in recovery. It also saves lives by reducing the rate of relapse.
At Calais CTC, we view MAT as a whole-person treatment. Group and individual therapy sessions work to address the core causes of addiction along with the low self-esteem and negative thinking that often accompany it. When patients fully engage in counseling, they are able to develop important tools and coping skills that will help them throughout their recovery process. Years of experience in the field of recovery has shown us that, sometimes, examining the past is the best way to change the future.
Our caring team makes every effort to simplify the admissions process so that patients can access addiction treatment as soon as possible. Medical and behavioral evaluations are an important part of that process. The information we gather from your medical history and any recommended diagnostics can help us create an individualized treatment plan to meet all your needs. Once we have established the most effective medications and therapies for you, addiction treatment can begin. The admissions process at our outpatient opioid addiction treatment center is simple yet thorough. Patients should expect to complete an intake assessment, which provides us with necessary information about medical and mental health concerns. Some diagnostic tests may be recommended for our healthcare professionals to have a clear picture of your needs and create an individualized treatment plan.
