Clarksville Comprehensive Treatment Center View Specialties

Clarksville Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC) is a premier outpatient addiction treatment center. We serve adults age 18 and older who are struggling with opioid addictions, including addictions to heroin, morphine, OxyContin, and other prescription medications. Our CTC is located in Clarksville, Tennessee, and we welcome people of all genders.
At Clarksville CTC, we offer medication-assisted treatment (MAT) that utilizes prescription medications to help alleviate the severe effects of opioid withdrawal. MAT is a well-researched program that has been found to be very effective in the treatment of opioid addiction. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and other respected health organizations recommend MAT, especially for patients who are at high risk for relapse and those who have a long history of opioid addiction.
Unlike methadone clinics that can prescribe only methadone, our program can provide prescriptions for methadone, buprenorphine, and Suboxone for successful outpatient addiction treatment. Methadone alone does not help relieve symptoms for every person, and it causes unwanted side effects for some. The ability to offer an individualized treatment plan that combines two or more medications helps us serve our patients more effectively. Medications and their effects are closely monitored to ensure safety and progress.
We also provide both group and individual therapies. Participation in therapy gives patients an opportunity to address mental health and behavioral concerns that may contribute to opioid addiction. Individual therapy provides a private environment where patients can discuss personal matters that they may not want to share in a group setting. Group sessions give patients an opportunity to develop and practice important communication and social skills. They can also form foundational friendships with others who understand their struggles. In group therapy, our patients learn the value of peer support and the power of providing a positive example for others.
Our supportive staff works diligently to maintain a welcoming and supportive environment at Clarksville CTC. Each patient must undergo a thorough medical and mental health evaluation to ensure that their individualized treatment plan meets their specific needs. We strive to make the assessment process as quick and easy as possible so that patients can begin life-changing treatments right away. MAT has a strong reputation for helping people recover from opioid addiction, but it is not a miracle cure. Patients must still collaborate with their treatment providers and follow the advice they are given to reach their recovery goals.
