New River Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC) in Galax, Virginia, is a leading provider of medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid addiction. Our outpatient addiction treatment center assists adults age 18 and older as they transition from opioid addiction to healing and recovery. New River CTC offers a combination of therapies to best support clients as they gain freedom from addiction to opioids. Treatment at New River CTC begins with a thorough evaluation. Clients discuss their medical history, mental health, and substance use with a physician. We create an individualized treatment plan to support a client’s unique needs.
Medication-assisted treatment at New River CTC may involve the use of methadone, Suboxone, buprenorphine, or naltrexone. The range of MAT medications available at our treatment center allows us to provide the best possible assistance throughout the process of detox and early recovery. Clients are encouraged to communicate with our behavioral health staff about medical concerns, opioid cravings, and any other challenges they face. Our use of multiple medication options equips us to adjust the type and dosage of MAT medication to best support client success.
Medication-assisted treatment plays a vital role in helping clients overcome the severe physical symptoms and psychological cravings that occur with opioid addiction treatment. The detox process alone can be so physically overwhelming that most individuals find it impossible to stop using without medical intervention. Even after detox is complete, many individuals continue to experience cravings. Cravings are the primary reason why individuals relapse after completing a detox program. MAT helps clients overcome these cravings, making it an irreplaceable tool for achieving long-term recovery. Although prescription medications have proved to have a high success rate, maintaining an opioid-free lifestyle is difficult without significant changes to a client’s established habits and patterns. To help with this, MAT at New River CTC involves participation in group and individual counseling sessions. Therapy sessions target the behavioral, mental, and emotional areas in which a client needs support and healing. Our counselors help clients learn tools for coping with cravings and triggers. Clients are encouraged to identify the relational and social changes they need to make to facilitate their well-being and reduce the likelihood of relapse.
Every person who comes to New River CTC is treated with dignity and respect by our compassionate staff. We strive to provide clients with support and understanding as they embark on the life-changing journey of recovery. The treatment program at New River CTC helps clients leave opioid addiction behind and restores hope for the future.
