Dunmore Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC) is a leading outpatient treatment center serving adults age 18 and older in Dunmore, Pennsylvania. Our opioid addiction treatment program offers medication-assisted treatment (MAT), which combines the use of prescription medications with counseling to treat opioid addiction. MAT at Dunmore CTC involves the use of Suboxone, buprenorphine, naltrexone, or methadone to manage withdrawal symptoms and curb cravings related to opioid addiction. In the event that relapse occurs, MAT medications block the euphoric effects of opioids like heroin and prescription pain medications. This means that a relapse is more likely to be an isolated event, and a client is more likely to continue with treatment rather than fall back into active addiction.
MAT has proved to be a highly effective way of combating opioid addiction. Opioid addiction is challenging to overcome. Severe withdrawal symptoms make it very difficult for individuals to stop using without assistance, and ongoing cravings are a major obstacle to long-term recovery. MAT can be highly effective in helping people stop using and find relief from cravings. However, the use of medication alone treats the symptoms without addressing the root causes of addiction. Our therapies work to address the social and psychological components of drug use. Clients receive addiction education and support with the challenges that arise in early recovery. They learn to identify and avoid triggers that might lead to relapse. An individual counselor works with clients to identify lifestyle changes and other factors that can help support long-term recovery. Group therapy sessions model the importance of creating a supportive recovery community and demonstrate the power of receiving support and understanding from peers.
Clients at Dunmore CTC begin treatment with a thorough evaluation. We use medical and mental health history to identify the best MAT medication and create an individualized treatment plan designed to best support recovery from opioid addiction. The client is closely monitored to ensure that the medication is working to adequately support abstinence from opioid use. Counselors work to identify any co-occurring disorders and unresolved traumas that may be contributing to substance use.
Dunmore CTC understands that successful addiction treatment must give clients the tools necessary for healing and transformation. Our MAT program provides comprehensive care by combining the use of prescription medications, individual therapy, and group therapy to address the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual components of addiction. While medication works to help clients refrain from using opioids, our therapies provide the education and coping skills needed to understand the cycle of addiction and permanently step out of it.
