Jackson Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC) offers medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for adults age 18 and older of all genders who are seeking recovery from opioid addiction. We are a premier outpatient addiction treatment center in Jackson, Mississippi.
Years of independent research has shown that MAT is a safe and effective method for treating opioid use disorder. Providing prescription medications for those in withdrawal helps them avoid severe opioid cravings and painful physical symptoms. Medications used in our MAT program also help keep patients safe. Withdrawal from opioids such as heroin, fentanyl, morphine, OxyContin, and other prescription painkillers can cause life-threatening symptoms and relapse that can lead to a fatal overdose. Easing the physical and psychological discomforts of withdrawal allows patients to focus on their recovery and address the social, emotional, and mental components of addiction.
Methadone clinics can only prescribe methadone. Although methadone is effective for many people, it is not an effective treatment for everyone. At Jackson CTC, we are able to prescribe Suboxone, naltrexone, buprenorphine, and methadone. Offering more medications means that we can help more people. Caring for patients as they manage the symptoms of opioid addiction involves more than simply prescribing medications. Our addiction treatment program is effective because we take a whole-person approach to opioid addiction recovery.
Patients at Jackson CTC also take part in group and individual counseling sessions to help them address behavioral patterns and develop the skills that are needed for long-term recovery. During individual therapy, patients work one-on-one with a caring mental health counselor. It is an opportunity to discuss past trauma or other experiences that stand in the way of reaching recovery goals. In group sessions, patients meet with peers to share their struggles and successes along the recovery journey. Counseling sessions teach new coping and stress management skills and provide other tools our patients can use to thrive in daily life.
We understand that a complicated or prolonged admissions process is the last thing our patients want once they have made the commitment to start treatment. Our process is both thorough and efficient. After our clinicians review your medical history, including any past treatment experiences, you will be asked to take a series of basic diagnostic tests. We will use this information to develop an individualized treatment plan that can best meet your physical, mental, and emotional needs. At Jackson CTC, we strongly believe that providing patients with comprehensive care in a respectful, nurturing environment can lead to lasting recovery.
