Located in Shelbyville, Kentucky, Shelbyville Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC) is the leading treatment provider of medication-assisted treatment (MAT) in the Southeast. With a full range of treatment options available for adults age 18 and older, there is no better place to receive outpatient addiction treatment.
MAT has quickly become the leading treatment option for people who are suffering from opioid addiction. Decades of research has shown this treatment method to be effective in helping people stop using opioids, curb cravings, and achieve lasting recovery. At Shelbyville CTC, we offer several medications in conjunction with individual and group counseling to ensure that each patient gets the individualized care they need to recover.
There are four primary medications used in the treatment of opioid addiction: methadone, Suboxone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone. Each of these medications works in a different way to combat the physical effects of opioid dependence. Our treatment team will work with you to help you understand your treatment options and choose the medication that will work best for you.
Methadone, Suboxone, and buprenorphine all work as opioid agonists, meaning that they target the same receptors as illicit and prescription opioids do. They can drastically reduce or even eliminate physical withdrawal symptoms as well as help people feel better mentally. Through the use of these medications, people can quickly get back to their regular lives without suffering from any lasting consequences of opioid addiction. Naltrexone works as an opioid blocker by stopping other opioids from producing any effects. Taking naltrexone can also help curb cravings.
As part of the medication-assisted treatment program at Shelbyville CTC, we also offer extensive individual and group counseling options to help people recover. In individual counseling sessions, you can learn about the nature of addiction and develop helpful coping mechanisms. Group therapy offers patients a space to share their struggles and successes with others who are also working toward recovery from opioid addiction.
When you’re ready to start receiving treatment for an opioid addiction, reach out to the professionals at Shelbyville CTC. Our expert addiction team can walk you through our full range of services, help you choose the programs that will be of most benefit to you, and be there to support you every step of the way. We know that recovery is possible for everyone — and the compassionate professionals at our clinic will work tirelessly to help you achieve sobriety.
