Christiansburg Comprehensive Treatment Center View Specialties

Christiansburg Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC) is the premier opioid addiction treatment center in Christiansburg, Virginia. We offer outpatient addiction treatment for those who are seeking help with opioid addiction. Our CTC offers medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for adults age 18 and older. All genders are welcome. Our goal is to help adults end their opioid use through safe, effective treatment that supports their long-term recovery.
Medication-assisted treatment is a highly researched, evidence-based treatment method that integrates the use of prescription medications with counseling. The National Institutes of Health (NIH), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and other notable organizations recommend MAT for adults who are struggling with opioid addiction.
MAT programs increase an individual’s chances of long-term recovery from opioid addiction by reducing painful withdrawal symptoms, allowing them to focus on building the new skills required to maintain sobriety. MAT medications also reduce the likelihood of a potentially fatal relapse. Many people are familiar with the term methadone clinic. These clinics are authorized to prescribe methadone to help ease symptoms of opioid withdrawal. MAT at our treatment center includes evidence-based therapies to care for the physical and mental health needs of each patient. Each individualized treatment plan includes a prescription for buprenorphine, methadone, or Suboxone, along with group and individual therapies.
During counseling, Christiansburg CTC patients can address the emotional, social, and behavioral aspects of their life that have led to opioid addiction. Therapy can provide patients with a new self-awareness and the skills needed to cope with stress in a healthier way. Patients learn how to resist triggers and stay strong in their recovery. One-on-one counseling offers the privacy some patients need to discuss personal matters and address past traumas that may have contributed to opioid addiction. Group therapy provides a safe place to learn from peers who are also in the recovery process. Group sessions are led by our mental health professionals, who create a supportive atmosphere where all patients are welcome. Individualized treatment plans are an important part of the comprehensive care we offer. Each person responds to medications differently, and certain medications work better for some than for others. During each patient’s intake assessment, our medical professional conducts a thorough physical and mental health evaluation to better understand their needs. We strive to provide each participant with the personalized services that best address their medical needs, addiction history, and wellness goals.
