Cedar Rapids Comprehensive Treatment Center View Specialties

Located in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Cedar Rapids Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC) provides outpatient addiction treatment for adults age 18 and older who are struggling with opioid addiction. We offer medication-assisted treatment (MAT), which is an evidence-based treatment that combines talk therapies with the monitored use of certain prescription medications.
This treatment modality has proved to be effective and is supported by groups such as the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA). The specific medications used in MAT will depend on each patient, their needs, and their situation. At Cedar Rapids CTC, we offer FDA-approved medications that include methadone, buprenorphine, Suboxone, and naltrexone. In addition, we combine the use of prescribed MAT medications with individual and group therapy sessions to maximize the effectiveness of each patient’s treatment plan.
Medications can be beneficial in alleviating certain cravings and withdrawal symptoms, helping patients focus more on their recovery. The use of MAT medications combined with individual and group therapy at Cedar Rapids CTC sets us apart from typical methadone clinics. Individual sessions at Cedar Rapids CTC provide the chance for patients to discuss topics they may not be comfortable bringing up during group sessions. This type of therapy can be a great asset for patients because they are able to build trust with our team and garner focused feedback, helping them achieve their recovery goals.
While individual therapy involves a professional working with a patient one-on-one, group therapy gives patients the opportunity to learn from others. Group sessions are always led by our trained professionals, with whom patients often forge new supportive relationships. These sessions also give patients a chance to build support systems with other patients at our CTC. Patients learn problem-solving and healthy communication skills during sessions that they can use throughout their entire lives.
The effectiveness of our premier opioid addiction treatment programs lies in the ability of staff to provide individualized services. Each patient begins the path to recovery at Cedar Rapids CTC with a detailed intake interview, during which we determine their needs and goals for recovery. Appropriate types and dosages of MAT medications are also determined. As part of our leading comprehensive treatment, every patient is treated with dignity and respect as they build supportive, healthy relationships with staff and other patients who have had similar experiences. At Cedar Rapids CTC, we believe in empowering each patient to live their best life free of opioid addiction.
