Elkton Comprehensive Treatment Center View Specialties

Located in Elkton, Maryland, Elkton Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC) is a premier provider of medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid addiction. We are an outpatient addiction treatment facility that offers help for adults age 18 and older of all genders who have an opioid addiction. MAT is an evidence-based opioid addiction treatment option that has been in use for decades. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) recommend MAT for the treatment of opioid addiction. MAT incorporates the use of medications to help reduce symptoms of withdrawal and curb cravings, providing a better chance of sustained recovery.
At Elkton CTC, we employ methadone, buprenorphine, and Suboxone. Each patient we treat is an individual. We know that medication can affect people differently, which is why we perform a thorough physical exam and a drug screening at intake to determine what needs to be included in a person’s individualized treatment plan. We monitor the entire withdrawal process and meet with our patients often to discuss medication effects. Although medications can address the physical impact of opioid addiction, they cannot treat the psychological aspects.
MAT at our clinic pairs medication with counseling to treat both sides of addiction. We offer individual counseling sessions, giving patients time to speak one-on-one with an expert about how addiction has affected them psychologically. Together with our highly trained counselors, patients can address the underlying causes of addiction, learning coping strategies that can help prevent relapse. We also guide patients in understanding how opioid addiction has impacted their family members and other loved ones and whether there are any obstacles standing in the way of recovery. Our group counseling sessions can help patients feel less isolated. Counselors encourage the sharing of experiences with recovery, allowing patients at all stages to see what the process looks like while also offering relapse prevention techniques that encourage sustained recovery.
At Elkton CTC, our focus is on offering customized treatment plans for all our patients. We ensure not only that we choose the right medication but also that the dosages are effective and safe. Counseling sessions also reflect the strengths, goals, and needs of each patient. If you or a loved one is experiencing symptoms of opioid addiction, help is just a phone call away. We are here to answer questions about our therapies and guide you as you begin on your path to recovery.
