Hermitage Comprehensive Treatment Center, MAT

Hermitage Comprehensive Treatment Center View Specialties

Hermitage Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC), located in Hermitage, Tennessee, is a leading outpatient addiction treatment center. We offer medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for people who are seeking recovery from opioid addiction. Our program is designed for adults age 18 and older and is open to all genders.
Opioids include heroin, prescription painkillers like OxyContin, morphine, fentanyl, and more. Hermitage CTC offers MAT because it is an evidence-based method of opioid addiction treatment that has been well researched. Our MAT program uses only FDA-approved medications that are closely monitored. Hermitage CTC is authorized to prescribe both methadone and buprenorphine to serve a greater number of people. Methadone causes unwanted side effects in some people and is not always effective as an addiction treatment. Prescription medications can minimize the uncomfortable and sometimes dangerous symptoms of opioid withdrawal.
The pain of withdrawal, as well as the associated risks, is a deterrent for many who seek opioid addiction treatment. The use of methadone, buprenorphine, and other medications has proved to ease withdrawal symptoms and reduce the risk for dangerous relapse. Opioid addiction affects everyone differently. A person’s mental and emotional health and relationships with others may all be impacted. Having a history of opioid addiction influences every aspect of life, from family relationships to employment to housing.
At Hermitage CTC, you can receive the individualized care needed to reach your wellness goals and repair the parts of your life that have been damaged by addiction. We are proud of the welcoming environment we maintain at our treatment center. New patients complete a thorough health and wellness evaluation to ensure that our program is an appropriate treatment for their needs. Our clinicians take a health and addiction history to fully ascertain each patient’s needs. That information is used to create an individualized treatment plan that includes medications and group and individual counseling.
Counseling provides patients with opportunities to heal past trauma and take a deeper look at beliefs and behaviors that may have contributed to opioid use and addiction. In private, one-on-one counseling sessions, mental health professionals provide feedback and help patients learn the valuable skills they need to maintain recovery after treatment is over. Group therapy is a place where peers can help one another with the guidance of a clinician. Both forms of counseling help our patients improve stress management, communication, and problem-solving skills, which they will need to manage recovery on their own.
