Tigard Comprehensive Treatment Center View Specialties

Located in Tigard, Oregon, Tigard Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC) is a leading opioid addiction treatment center that provides services for adults age 18 and older of all genders. Our services include medication-assisted treatment (MAT), which uses talk therapy in addition to prescription medications to improve recovery results for our patients.
Our team at Tigard CTC includes counselors, nurses, and physicians who believe in providing comprehensive, compassionate, and holistic therapies to help patients reach their recovery goals. MAT at our outpatient addiction treatment facility includes the use of four different effective medications, all of which are FDA-approved. They are Suboxone, naltrexone, methadone, and buprenorphine. These medications can reduce or eliminate the uncomfortable symptoms that accompany withdrawal from opioid use. They can also diminish or completely remove cravings our patients might otherwise experience.
Reducing cravings and withdrawal symptoms allows our patients to concentrate more fully on their recovery. This can greatly improve their chances of avoiding relapse in the future. Medication-assisted treatment has proved to be a safer and more effective way of achieving and sustaining recovery from opioid addiction than treatment that doesn’t involve the use of medications. While the medications can affect different patients in different ways, they all promote healing. Our expert clinicians perform an extensive intake evaluation for every patient when they first come to Tigard CTC for care for an opioid addiction. This evaluation allows us to determine which medication will be most helpful, and we’ll be able to determine the dosage that will have the best effect on a patient’s journey to recovery.
At Tigard CTC, we do more than just administer medication. We offer group therapy and individual therapy as part of MAT, both of which are instrumental to the success of our patients. Individual and group counseling sessions give patients the opportunity to focus on all aspects of addiction. During group therapy, patients are able to form supportive bonds with others who are also working toward recovery from opioid addiction and have had similar experiences. Individual therapy allows patients to look inward at their own personal struggles and triumphs as they learn coping skills they can use throughout their lives, far beyond treatment.
We create an individualized treatment plan for each patient because we are more than just a methadone clinic. We represent hope, support, and empathy for our patients as they regain their sense of pride and freedom and work to reach their recovery goals.
