Volunteer Comprehensive Treatment Center is a leading provider of medication assisted treatment for adults, ages 18 and older.
Seeing the importance of supplying services that can help individuals move past opioid addiction, our center is prepared to offer the below listed medications, all of which have been proven effective in treating opioid addiction and can be incorporated into a patient’s personalized treatment plan:
Methadone: Methadone is a synthetic medication that works by stopping the onset of withdrawal symptoms and drug cravings. Unlike other opioids, however, methadone does not create a disorienting high. This medication is considered an opioid agonist, and is effective in treating opioid addiction.
Subutex: Subutex contains buprenorphine as its primary ingredient, and like methadone, decreases withdrawal symptoms and cravings to use opioids. Considered a partial opioid agonist-antagonist, Subutex works to stop the negative effects of opioids within the brain.
Suboxone: Suboxone is comprised of buprenorphine and naloxone, and lessens the intensity of withdrawal symptoms and drug cravings. However, if a patient attempts to abuse Suboxone or any other opioid, withdrawal symptoms can occur.
The medication that is chosen for the patient (along with the dosage) will be determined by a medical professional. Each medication can be adjusted as needed throughout the treatment process.
In addition to medication assisted treatment services, Volunteer Comprehensive Treatment Center offers a variety of different services for those who are utilizing methadone, Subutex, or Suboxone within their treatment plans. Our staff, comprised of talented and dedicated professionals and addiction specialists, is made up of nurses, doctors, and counselors who are determined to provide top-notch care for each patient. Below are the services that have aided numerous people towards a sober future, free of opioid abuse:
- Individual therapy sessions allow patients to begin working through the emotions, feelings, successes, and setbacks that they experience during treatment with a counselor in a private setting.
- Group therapy sessions are held by certified counselors, and offer an environment where patients can obtain support from others who have walked similar paths as they have.
