Our Therapeutic Treatments

Therapeutic Treatments for Opioid Abuse

In order to help our patients meet their treatment goals, Volunteer Comprehensive Treatment Center supplies proven effective therapeutic interventions as part of our high quality programming.

The medications that our experienced doctors prescribe and monitor are just one facet of care that we believe enhances the recovery process when a person is working toward defeating an addiction to opioids. The other integral part of Volunteer’s treatment is the opportunity for each patient to explore, understand, and process the many emotional, behavioral, and psychological factors that have likely contributed to the development of opioid addiction. Failing to acknowledge and address these factors can significantly increase an individual’s chances of relapsing, halting the recovery process in its tracks. However, at Volunteer Comprehensive Treatment Center, men and women are given the best chance at successfully recovering from their addictions so that they can achieve happier and healthier lives.

Our Therapeutic Interventions

Therapeutic Interventions for Opioid Abuse

Many individuals who are struggling with a dependence upon opioids report that they began using substances as a means of numbing some sort of turmoil. Once the pattern of substance abuse begins in response to emotional pain, abstaining from opioids can be even more difficult. The medications used within medication assisted treatment tackle the uncomfortable, and often painful, withdrawal symptoms and drug cravings for opioids, yet taking a medication does not heal the inner strife experienced by those addicted to opioids. For this reason, Volunteer Comprehensive Treatment Center is pleased to offer the following to patients who begin their recovery journeys at this center:

  • Individual therapy
  • Group therapy

Volunteer’s team of highly trained counselors lead individual and group therapy sessions and serve as beacons of support throughout the recovery process. The inclusion and frequency of therapy sessions will be based on each patient’s needs, however, every man and women who comes for care will have the option of partaking in these key parts of treatment at Volunteer.

If you or someone you care about is in need of treatment that has been proven to change lives, look no further than Volunteer Comprehensive Treatment Center. In choosing this center to embark on the road to recovery, you are taking an important step on the path to a brighter, healthier, and opioid-free future.
