Riverside Comprehensive Treatment Center View Specialties

Riverside Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC) is a leading provider of outpatient addiction treatment in Riverside, California. We offer medication-assisted treatment (MAT), which combines the use of prescription medications with counseling, for adults age 18 and older who are struggling with opioid use disorder.
Riverside CTC takes a whole-person approach to addiction treatment. MAT medications offer immediate support with opioid dependency, while counseling is used to help address the root causes that led to addiction. The medications used in MAT provide immense relief from withdrawal symptoms and opioid cravings. These are two of the biggest barriers to overcoming opioid addiction. MAT medications are highly effective because they alleviate these concerns. Methadone was the first MAT medication made available for treating opioid addiction, and today, many facilities continue to offer methadone alone for medication-assisted treatment.
At Riverside CTC, we understand that every client is unique, and what works for one individual may be less effective for another. To best serve the needs of every client who is seeking freedom from opioid addiction, Riverside CTC offers a range of MAT medications, including methadone, naltrexone, Suboxone, and buprenorphine. Our guiding philosophy is to respect and empower the individual. If a client has concerns about a medication’s effectiveness, or they are not experiencing the expected relief from cravings or withdrawal symptoms, they can meet with the treatment team to discuss these concerns.
Our range of medications makes us equipped to alter a client’s medication as needed until we find the most effective solution. Medications allow our clients to successfully stop opioid use and find physical relief. This alone can be a deeply empowering and motivating experience, but it doesn’t address the causal factors of addiction.
Counseling is a valuable tool for building a strong foundation for lasting recovery. One-on-one counseling at Riverside CTC gives clients individual attention. Our counselors help clients learn coping and communication skills to avoid relapse. In individual counseling sessions, a counselor helps each client identify mental, emotional, and social factors that contribute to addiction and offers guidance for making changes that will support lasting recovery.
The premier treatment team at Riverside CTC is comprised of physicians, nurses, counselors, and other behavioral health specialists. Our compassionate staff understands that the decision to seek treatment for opioid addiction can bring fear and hesitation, and we strive to provide clients with a warm and encouraging environment as they take the steps necessary to reclaim their lives and their health.
