Lynn Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC) offers addiction treatment services for adults age 18 and older in Lynn, Massachusetts. Our treatment center utilizes medication-assisted treatment (MAT), which combines medication with group counseling and individual counseling. In treating opioid addiction, a number of factors must be considered. These include medical history, mental health history, length and frequency of use, and the severity of dependency. The staff at Lynn CTC considers all these factors and more to create an individualized treatment plan for each client.
Medication-assisted treatment at Lynn CTC begins with a prescription for either methadone or Suboxone. The specific medication and dosage are determined as part of a client’s treatment plan. MAT is an evidence-based approach to treating opioid addiction. Its high success rate makes it the leading method of opioid addiction treatment. MAT is recommended by respected organizations like the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). The medication offered as part of MAT provides two primary benefits for a client — withdrawal support and relief from cravings. Regular opioid use can result in severe physical dependency. One of the greatest barriers to stopping opioid addiction is getting through the period of withdrawal symptoms experienced during detox. Even after detox is complete, opioid addiction has a strong psychological pull that can make it difficult to resist. Cravings are complex and powerful. Our compassionate team understands that the emotional and physical sensations brought on by opioid use combined with psychological factors can present significant challenges for people who are working toward recovery.
Lynn CTC uses MAT to help clients safely and successfully stop opioid use. We are an outpatient addiction treatment center, which means that clients can receive the treatment they need without interruption to responsibilities at home or work. We know that medication alone only addresses some aspects of opioid addiction.
Lynn CTC aims to effect lasting change through the inclusion of individual and group therapies as an important part of a client's treatment plan. Our counseling sessions give clients opportunities to address the underlying social and behavioral factors that contribute to opioid use. Clients can learn strategies for maintaining mental and emotional health and gain tools for long-term recovery maintenance. The premier addiction treatment program at Lynn CTC provides clients with the care and counseling they need to understand and heal from opioid addiction. Clients are empowered to find freedom and relief from addiction with the support of the dedicated staff at Lynn CTC."
