Capalina Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC) is the premier outpatient addiction treatment center in San Marcos, California, for medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid addiction. We provide programming for adults age 18 and older. All genders are welcome.
Our medication-assisted treatment program is designed to help adults who are struggling with addictions to prescription painkillers, heroin, and other opioids. We use FDA-approved medications to assist those who are seeking recovery from opioid addiction. MAT has been extensively researched and found to be safe and effective. It is recommended by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) for opioid addiction treatment, especially for those who are at higher risk for severe withdrawal symptoms.
The MAT program at Capalina CTC is more than that of a traditional methadone clinic. Methadone clinics are only authorized to prescribe one medication — methadone. While helpful for many, methadone is not effective for every person and may cause adverse reactions for some people. At Capalina CTC, we can prescribe methadone, buprenorphine, naltrexone, or Suboxone to help you recover from opioid addiction. For many patients, some of these medications may be more beneficial than others in decreasing the mental and physical effects of withdrawal and preventing relapse.
Medications are only one part of the MAT program at Capalina CTC. Our experienced mental health experts understand that each person’s emotional, mental, and physical health needs must be addressed to create a strong recovery foundation. That’s why we incorporate a variety of counseling services, including group and individual counseling, into our program. Examining past behaviors and beliefs and the choices and obstacles that have led to addiction is crucial for developing the new skills needed to succeed in recovery. It’s true that recovery is an individual process, and each person needs the right support and guidance to find and stay on their recovery path. The therapies we offer are an important part of that support.
The dedicated team at Capalina CTC is committed to making the admissions process as easy as possible. We understand that once you’ve made the decision to work toward recovery, you are anxious to get started. To provide each patient with the most effective treatment plan, we begin by completing mental and physical health assessments to learn more about their immediate and long-term needs. Some testing may be required based on our healthcare experts’ recommendations. During the intake process, we will discuss your recovery goals and answer any questions you may have about MAT at Capalina Comprehensive Treatment Center.
