At El Cajon Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC) in El Cajon, California, we provide leading medication-assisted treatment (MAT) options for opioid addiction. Our clinic offers treatment for adults age 18 and older of all genders who have opioid addictions.
We understand the difficulties of withdrawal and how it may keep people from seeking recovery. That is why we utilize MAT medications to help minimize symptoms, reduce cravings, and maximize the chances of sustained recovery. We rely on medications like methadone, buprenorphine, Suboxone, and naltrexone for the best results. Unlike other clinics, which only use methadone, we work with all these different medications to help us find what suits each person.
MAT is a treatment option that is recommended by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA). It is a decades-old, evidence-based approach to addiction treatment. We know that every person we treat is an individual, which is why we carefully assess medical history, addiction history, and any other factors that may affect recovery to customize a plan that fits each person’s needs.
Along with prescription medications, MAT incorporates group and individual counseling to address the psychological aspects of opioid addiction. Qualified and dedicated counselors lead group sessions, allowing those who are suffering from symptoms of addiction to share their journeys with others. Group counseling aims to create a nonjudgmental space in which all participants feel supported. Our individual counseling sessions allow people to get to the underlying causes of opioid addiction. Experienced counselors can also help uncover reasons why recovery may not have lasted in the past and how addiction can affect family members and other loved ones.
By learning coping skills and how to apply new behaviors when faced with challenges, individuals can get on the path to lifelong recovery. When you turn to our outpatient addiction treatment center, we will perform a physical exam and drug screening to get an overview of your health. With that information, we can create an individualized treatment plan to help you succeed. Various medications can affect people differently, so we will carefully monitor the withdrawal process to guide your safety and comfort.
Reaching out for help is the first step on your journey to recovery. At El Cajon Comprehensive Treatment Center, we are here to guide you through our medication-assisted treatment program. Start your path to an opioid-free life today.
