Fitchburg Comprehensive Treatment Center View Specialties

Fitchburg Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC) is the leading opioid addiction treatment center offering outpatient addiction treatment in Fitchburg, Massachusetts. We offer medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for adults age 18 and older, and we welcome all genders. MAT, which combines the use of prescription medications and counseling, has proved to help more people have achieve long-term recovery.
Our CTC provides methadone and Suboxone to decrease the unwanted side effects of opioid withdrawal. Depending on the severity and duration of the addiction, side effects can cause pain, sickness, and intense cravings that may lead to relapse. Relapsing while in withdrawal puts people at high risk for accidental fatal overdose. The medications we offer ease uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms and lower the risk for relapse. MAT is highly recommended by several leading health organizations, including the National Institutes of Health and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
Fitchburg CTC patients who take part in MAT are more likely to remain in treatment and regain control of their lives. A comprehensive treatment program integrates both medication and counseling to care for the patient’s social, emotional, and mental health needs. Our CTC provides individual and group therapy sessions where patients can discuss concerns with the help of a trained mental health professional. Individual counseling sessions are the ideal environment for discussing past traumas and other difficult experiences that contributed to opioid addiction. Counselors offer nonjudgmental feedback and provide techniques that help patients learn new ways of coping with life’s challenges. Group therapy sessions are facilitated by one of our clinicians, who maintains a positive, supportive environment where peers can discuss challenges. Sharing with other people who are struggling with addiction helps patients practice self-growth techniques and realize that they are not alone. Having a strong recovery network is key for long-term recovery, and group therapy offers many people a chance to begin building healthy relationships that continue outside of our treatment facility.
Every patient’s individualized treatment plan is tailored to their specific symptoms, strengths, needs, and medical history. Our compassionate staff strives to make the intake process as easy as possible. Each patient undergoes a complete evaluation, including drug testing and other diagnostics, so that our clinician can properly evaluate their specific needs. Maintaining a positive, supportive environment where patients are given respect and appropriate medical care is our team’s main goal. We understand that a warm, welcoming environment helps build a foundation for long-term recovery.
