Located in Longwood, Florida, Longwood Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC) is the premier choice for medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to help adults age 18 and older break free from opioid addiction. Using the best evidence-based medications, clinical expertise, and a fundamental understanding of addiction, our team can help you achieve recovery and get back to living a higher quality of life.
MAT has been thoroughly researched in the last several decades. Using medications that mimic the effect of opioids, which can be delivered in a controlled and supervised manner, can relieve several of the physical effects of opioid addiction. These medications can reduce or even eliminate opioid withdrawal symptoms. Furthermore, they are highly effective in reducing relapse rates and can promote long-term recovery. Simply put, MAT is the most effective means of overcoming opioid addiction.
One medication used at Longwood CTC is methadone. Longwood CTC continues to use methadone in our practice, as it is highly beneficial for people who have an opioid addiction. This medication works as a full agonist of the opioid receptor and allows patients to feel tremendous relief. This medication is prescribed by trained physicians who collaborate with their patients to ensure that it is having the intended effect.
The other medication used at Longwood CTC is Suboxone. This medication is a partial opioid agonist, meaning that it still targets opioid receptors but in a lesser fashion than methadone. As such, it alleviates the physical symptoms of opioid addiction and withdrawal but has less abuse potential. Someone who starts taking Suboxone typically feels substantial relief from their physical symptoms and an increased sense of mental clarity. They can quickly return to work, hobbies, and family obligations with minimal interference in their daily life.
Longwood CTC offers both of these medications because we understand that everybody responds to them differently. By having both options, our patients can work with their provider to ensure that they get the medication that works best for them and helps them stay sober. All our services are individualized to each patient, ensuring that they have the best chance of recovery.
