Fashion Valley Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC) is the premier outpatient addiction treatment center in San Diego, California. We offer medication-assisted treatment (MAT) services for adults age 18 and older of all genders. Our programming is designed to help those who are seeking recovery from opioid addiction, including addictions to prescription painkillers, heroin, and morphine.
The MAT program at Fashion Valley CTC uses both prescription medications and counseling to help people end opioid use. Decades of documented research supports the use of MAT to treat addiction. MAT is recommended by several major health organizations, including the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Our addiction treatment center is authorized to prescribe several different medications for our patients. While methadone has proved to help alleviate severe withdrawal symptoms and reduce the risk for a fatal relapse overdose, methadone alone is not effective for every person. Patients at Fashion Valley CTC may receive methadone, buprenorphine, Suboxone, or naltrexone. A clinician from our team works closely with each patient to explain the benefits of each medication and determine the best treatment. The medications used in MAT help alleviate the severe distress of opioid withdrawal, including the strong cravings that can lead to relapse.
A more positive withdrawal experience paves the way for recovery, but patients need more than medication for long-term recovery success. They must develop new skills to cope with stress and experience the personal growth needed to make lasting lifestyle changes. Counseling provides significant assistance in these areas.
Fashion Valley CTC patients participate in individual (one-on-one) and group therapy. Individual therapy provides a safe environment where patients are encouraged to explore past traumas or experiences that have contributed to unhealthy choices. Our experienced mental health professionals help them practice techniques for improved communication, problem-solving, and conflict resolution.
Group therapy offers a powerful opportunity for patients to share support with peers. Building a recovery network is an important part of maintaining sobriety once treatment is over. It is natural that patients enter a MAT center for the purpose of eliminating suffering as they go through withdrawal. At our CTC, we can help them accomplish this and much more.
By providing individualized treatment and the appropriate emotional, social, and behavioral components necessary for good mental health, Fashion Valley CTC helps patients build the strong foundation they need to end opioid addiction for good.
