South Nashville Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC) provides opioid addiction treatment services in Nashville, Tennessee. Our premier outpatient addiction treatment facility offers medication-assisted treatment (MAT), which combines the use of prescription medications like methadone, buprenorphine, and Suboxone with group and individual counseling.
Addiction to drugs such as heroin, fentanyl, and prescription opioids like Percocet and Vicodin is a growing problem across the U.S. South Nashville CTC helps adults age 18 and older overcome opioid addiction and reclaim their lives. Medication-assisted treatment is a leading tool for combating opioid addiction from the inside out. MAT medications work by relieving the physical withdrawal symptoms and cravings associated with opioid detox.
Opioid withdrawal symptoms include severe pain, nausea, diarrhea, cramps, and vomiting. Unassisted opioid withdrawal can even result in death. The discomfort of opioid withdrawal is so extreme that people often give up on detox because the physical effects are unbearable. The medications used in MAT also work to stabilize brain chemistry, allowing counseling to be more effective.
At South Nashville CTC, clients participate in both group and individual counseling sessions. While prescription medications provide support in dealing with withdrawal symptoms and cravings, our counseling sessions provide opportunities for clients to gain insights into their mental, emotional, and spiritual health. Individual sessions pair a client with a compassionate counselor who provides individualized guidance for areas that need healing or change. A counselor helps a client identify social, environmental, and relational factors that may be contributing to their opioid use or their struggles with mental health concerns. Clients can identify changes to make at home, at work, and in social groups that will create a lifestyle that supports recovery.
Establishing a healthy sense of community is an important element of addiction treatment. Our group counseling sessions are designed to help clients develop healthy relational, communication, coping, and conflict resolution skills. Having a community of peers in recovery is a valuable tool for clients to find support, understanding, and a sense of belonging. We guide clients in building these skills during treatment so that they are empowered to continue seeking healthy social dynamics once treatment ends.
The compassionate staff at South Nashville CTC treats clients with respect and consideration. Our goal is to provide the tools and training necessary to empower clients as they learn to navigate life’s challenges without the need for opioids. South Nashville CTC works to help every client achieve better health and freedom from opioid addiction.
