Rivers Shore Comprehensive Treatment Center View Specialties

Located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, River’s Shore Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC) offers individualized assistance for adults age 18 and older in overcoming opioid addiction. Our premier treatment center provides medication-assisted treatment (MAT), which combines the use of prescription medication with individual and group counseling.
MAT is a highly effective method of treating addictions to opioids like heroin, fentanyl, and prescription painkillers. The medications used in MAT at River’s Shore CTC help clients overcome some of the largest hurdles that accompany opioid addiction recovery. Opioids are highly addictive and quickly create a unique form of physical and psychological dependence. Even a short period of use can leave an individual unable to stop using without medical intervention.
Opioid withdrawal symptoms make stopping opioid use extremely difficult. Even after detox is complete, people who have used opioids may continue to experience unbearable opioid cravings for a long period. They go through many physical, mental, and emotional changes as they adjust to no longer having opioids in their system. The combination of cravings and altered physiology can be overwhelming. Lack of support for these concerns is a leading cause of relapse.
When clients have access to MAT medications at River’s Shore CTC, they experience reduced cravings, stabilized brain chemistry and bodily functions, and fewer challenging opioid withdrawal symptoms. We offer MAT medications such as methadone, buprenorphine, Suboxone, and naltrexone. The medications used in MAT make a significant difference in a client’s ability to stop using opioids, but they don’t address the underlying causes that have led to addiction. When left untreated, these concerns can lead a client to relapse.
Traditional methadone clinics provide clients with medication alone. MAT at River’s Shore CTC combines medication with counseling to help clients heal and reduce the risk for relapse. MAT at River’s Shore CTC involves participation in both individual and group counseling. Our counseling sessions are designed to help clients develop self-awareness about emotional and mental health, family dynamics, coping skills, and environmental factors. Clients are offered guidance in making changes that will support a life in recovery from opioid addiction.
At River’s Shore CTC, we understand that opioid addiction comes with unique challenges. Our outpatient addiction treatment center addresses opioid use disorder alone because we understand that opioid addiction has distinctive features that require specialized programming. At River’s Shore CTC, we make it possible for clients to achieve long-term recovery from opioid addiction.
