Escondido Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC), based out of Escondido, California, offers opioid addiction treatment for adults age 18 and older of all genders.
At our clinic, we use medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to maximize the chances of recovery. MAT is a decades-old treatment that leading organizations like the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration and the National Institute on Drug Abuse recommend for opioid addiction treatment. This evidence-based approach to addiction treatment relies on medications approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). They can alleviate the symptoms of withdrawal and help reduce cravings, letting patients recover safely.
Unlike other clinics, which only use methadone, at Escondido CTC, we use methadone, buprenorphine, Suboxone, and naltrexone. We assess which medications will work best for each patient, taking into account medical history, addiction history, and current health levels. At intake, our patients undergo a thorough physical exam as well as a drug screening, allowing our experts to create an individualized treatment plan for each person. We will ask about current opioid use and the patient’s unique life experiences.
Medication is only one aspect of the treatment options we offer. At Escondido CTC, we pair prescription medications with counseling to help people uncover the reasons why they turn to opioids like heroin and prescription painkillers. In one-on-one counseling sessions, each patient can benefit from speaking with one of our experienced counselors. Patients can work through the social, behavioral, and emotional stress opioid addiction causes.
To help prevent relapse, our counselors offer strategies and guidance on implementing new behaviors that can help patients cope without opioids in the future. They also help patients identify factors in their lives that may be preventing them from achieving their recovery goals. Counseling can also help patients understand the impact addiction can have on family members and other loved ones. At our outpatient addiction treatment center, we focus on customizing treatment plans for each patient.
We know that there is no one-size-fits-all opioid addiction treatment option, so we work to find the strategies that can help each individual achieve their goals. By using medication-assisted treatment, we offer adults who experience symptoms of opioid addiction the tools and support to cultivate sustainable recovery.
If you or a loved one is struggling with an addiction to opioids like heroin or prescription painkillers, you don’t have to go through it on your own. Escondido CTC in Escondido, California, is a leading provider of addiction treatment options. We can guide you through your recovery journey.
