Harrisburg Comprehensive Treatment Center View Specialties

Harrisburg Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC) is a premier outpatient opioid addiction treatment center in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. We offer opioid addiction treatment to adults age 18 and older. Our care team provides medication-assisted treatment (MAT), which is a treatment method that combines the use of prescription medications with counseling services to help clients achieve lasting recovery from opioid addiction. Traditional methadone clinics dispense medication that is shown to be effective in reducing relapse, but they do not always offer the comprehensive approach that is part of MAT, which is the addition of counseling services.
At Harrisburg CTC, we believe that while medication can substantially help in the recovery process, giving clients the opportunity to engage in therapy sessions further promotes lasting healing. Research supports the use of MAT as an effective way to treat opioid addiction. MAT helps ease opioid withdrawal symptoms and reduce relapse rates. It also lowers the risk of contracting or spreading infectious diseases related to intravenous drug use that can be common when people are abusing opioids like heroin. The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), along with other reputable organizations, recommend MAT as a leading choice for treating opioid addiction.
At Harrisburg CTC, we can provide prescriptions for methadone and Suboxone. Clients will only receive one type of medication, and the specific one they get will be determined based on their needs and the state of their health. The FDA has approved both of these medications for opioid addiction treatment. They can reduce the physical and psychological symptoms of opioid withdrawal and help the body heal from the physical harm opioid addiction can cause. In addition to prescribing and monitoring medications, the staff at our treatment center offers counseling services from qualified mental health professionals.
Participating in individual and group counseling can help clients address the behavioral, social, and emotional aspects of addiction. During therapy sessions, clients can develop new coping skills and learn how to identify and manage triggers and avoid relapse. Counseling can also assist in restoring relationships and helping clients build a support network that can benefit them during their recovery journey. The intake process at Harrisburg CTC allows our team to gain an understanding of each client’s history and current circumstances, including the frequency and duration of their drug use, medical history, the current state of their health, and any negative social influences that may be present.
Our caring clinicians use this information to develop an individualized treatment plan. We understand that each person’s recovery journey is different, and each client deserves personalized attention. During the admissions screening, we encourage prospective clients to ask any questions they may have about our MAT services and take the time to fully understand the program. Meeting your wellness goals takes full commitment. Our clients enjoy greater recovery success when they take an active role in treatment.
