Lakewood Comprehensive Treatment Center View Specialties

Lakewood Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC) in Lakewood, Washington, offers medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid addiction. Our addiction treatment center serves adults age 18 and older as they seek help with overcoming opioid addiction.
MAT at Lakewood CTC features a range of medication options, including buprenorphine, Suboxone, and methadone. For decades, methadone alone was available for medication-assisted treatment. Clinical studies have shown that other medications can be equally effective in providing support for overcoming opioid addiction. Lakewood CTC offers a variety of medications to best serve unique client needs. We understand that every individual reacts to medication differently. Offering three different medication options allows us the flexibility to alter both dosage and medication as necessary to best support clients as they transition to a state of health free of opioid dependency.
All medications used in MAT help clients achieve the same goal: relief from the powerful effects that create dependence. Opioids like heroin, fentanyl, and prescription pain medications can quickly create severe physical and psychological dependency. Attempting to detox without medication support is difficult and painful and can even result in death. The FDA-approved medications we use work by relieving withdrawal symptoms, stopping opioid cravings, and helping stabilize brain chemistry as a client undergoes physical, mental, and emotional changes. MAT has been proven to have such a significant positive impact on recovery outcomes that it has become the method of treating opioid addiction recommended by leading organizations like the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA).
At Lakewood CTC, we understand that putting a stop to opioid dependency is only the first step to achieving long-term healing. As the medication component of MAT works to provide relief and stability, the counseling component helps clients examine internal and external factors that must change to support lasting healing. Clients at Lakewood CTC participate in both group counseling and individual counseling during treatment. In these sessions, clients can address mental and emotional healing, coping skills, relapse triggers, family dynamics, social groups, and environmental factors. Our comprehensive counseling helps clients identify any areas of life that may be a hindrance to recovery and supports clients in creating individualized action plans for healing and change.
Lakewood CTC offers premier outpatient addiction treatment in a manner designed to facilitate both short-term support and long-term wellness. Our compassionate staff understands that when clients are empowered with the right tools, they can move beyond opioid addiction.
