San Diego Comprehensive Treatment Center View Specialties

Located in San Diego, California, San Diego Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC) is a leading provider of outpatient opioid addiction treatment in Southern California for adults age 18 and older. Offering medication-assisted treatment (MAT), our compassionate team is dedicated to helping patients start their recovery journeys.
Medication-assisted treatment is an evidence-based approach to opioid addiction treatment that combines counseling with the use of certain prescription medications. At San Diego CTC, the medications we offer include methadone, Suboxone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone. These medications serve to help alleviate the symptoms of withdrawal, helping patients jumpstart their recovery process. The particular medication that a person is prescribed will be determined based on the results of an initial assessment that covers patients’ current drug use, history of drug use, and additional personal circumstances.
Methadone has been used for decades to treat opioid addiction. As an opioid agonist, this medication can reduce or eliminate withdrawal symptoms and help people manage cravings so that they can return to their daily activities with minimal interruption. Suboxone and buprenorphine work as partial opioid agonists and have similar effects to those produced by methadone. Naltrexone is an opioid blocker that can substantially reduce cravings and stop prescription or illicit opioids from producing the euphoric effects often experienced by people who are abusing these drugs. Whichever medication you are prescribed, our providers will collaborate with you to ensure that you receive the adequate dose and will work through the entire recovery process with you.
In addition to the prescribing and monitoring of medication, the team at San Diego CTC incorporates individual counseling into each patient’s treatment plan. Working with a counselor in a one-on-one setting can give patients the opportunity to learn more about opioid addiction, identify triggers that may lead to their use of opioids, and develop healthy coping mechanisms that can prevent future relapse.
When you’re ready to receive outpatient opioid addiction treatment, please don’t hesitate to contact the team at San Diego Comprehensive Treatment Center. From the moment you call to the day you end treatment, our empathetic team will be there to support you in your recovery journey. With targeted therapies and mediations, as well as fully individualized treatment, patients in our care can discover that it is possible to recover from opioid addiction and go on to live a healthy, happy life.
