Located in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Tulsa Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC) provides premier opioid addiction treatment for adults age 18 and older who need comprehensive support. We serve patients of all genders by offering medication-assisted treatment (MAT), which has proved to be more effective than talk therapy alone.
Medication-assisted treatment combines the use of FDA-approved prescription medications with various therapies to support patients on their journey to recovery. Although years ago MAT only included the use of one medication, there are now more safe and effective medications available. At Tulsa CTC, we’re proud to offer our patients both methadone and buprenorphine.
When an individual has an opioid addiction, their body alters its chemistry to accommodate the substance. Then, as the person enters recovery and the body no longer has access to the substance, it must chemically alter itself again to adjust. This is known as the withdrawal period, and it can be accompanied by uncomfortable symptoms such as headaches, nausea, and restlessness. The prescription medications used in MAT have proved to reduce or even eliminate these uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. They can also help curb the cravings an individual has for opioids. When cravings and withdrawal symptoms are significantly limited, patients can more clearly focus on achieving their recovery goals.
The individual counseling that is included as part of MAT at Tulsa CTC is an essential aspect of the outpatient addiction treatment we provide for our patients. During one-on-one sessions with a counselor, patients can gain a better understanding of themselves as they learn how to handle emotions in healthy ways. In addition, individual therapy at Tulsa CTC facilitates lifestyle changes and helps patients manage symptoms. Together with their counselors, patients work to identify underlying causes of symptoms as they learn healthy, effective coping strategies. The end results of this comprehensive opioid addiction treatment are improved self-esteem and the ability to use effective coping strategies to manage daily life without opioids.
At Tulsa CTC, our team believes that the only way for our patients to achieve comprehensive recovery is through holistic, whole-person treatment. We create an individualized treatment plan for each patient that includes a prescription for a medication and a plan for individual therapy. We believe that complete healing and recovery are possible for every person, and we strive to provide our patients with the tools, support, and encouragement they need to achieve lasting recovery from opioid addiction.
