What We Offer

Individualized Care​​​​​​​
No two people heal from opioid use disorder the same way. The care our patients receive at a CTC is personalized to who they are, with each aspect of their treatment hand-picked based on what will be best to help them achieve long-term recovery.
Convenient Setting
CTCs offer comprehensive support in a convenient, flexible setting. Patients do not need to follow a preset treatment schedule that disrupts their regular routine or keeps them from working or going to school. Patients have the freedom to create a treatment schedule that works best for their lifestyle. 
Respectful Environment
We understand how challenging it can be to seek help for opioid use disorder, and we commend our patients for making the life-changing decision to get treatment. Our CTCs are safe and comfortable spaces where everyone is welcomed and treated with dignity and respect.

What is Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)?

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is an evidence-based approach to treating substance use disorders, particularly for opioid and alcohol addiction. MAT combines the utilization of prescription medications for alleviating withdrawal symptoms and cravings in combination with counseling to address the psychological aspects of recovery. The choice of medications, which may include methadone, buprenorphine, Suboxone, and Vivitrol, is tailored to individual requirements and undergoes medical monitoring to ensure effectiveness. 

At Acadia Healthcare, where our mission is to Lead Care With Light, we are dedicated to providing Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) to our patients. Discover below why you should consider becoming a part of this transformative endeavor:

  1. Reduction of Cravings and Withdrawal Symptom Reduction: At our CTCs, we utilize MAT medications such as methadone, buprenorphine, Suboxone, and Vivitrol to effectively reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms. This, in turn, empowers individuals to abstain from substance use with greater ease.
  2. Improved Treatment Retention: MAT plays a pivotal role in increasing treatment engagement and completion rates among our patients. This commitment and participation is essential for achieving and sustaining long-term recovery.
  3. Minimized Risk of Reoccurence: Our MAT approach incorporates the use of safe and effective medications that block the euphoric effects of opioids, significantly reducing the risk of reoccurence in substance use.
  4. Enhanced Quality of Life: MAT medications empower individuals to regain stability in their lives by enhancing employment prospects and promoting overall well-being.
  5. Customized Treatment: At CTC, we understand that every individual's journey is unique. MAT in combination with regular therapy sessions allows us to tailor treatment plans, offering various medications and dosages to match the severity of addiction and the individual's specific circumstances.
  6. Supports Comprehensive Therapies: We believe in a holistic approach to treatment. MAT is seamlessly integrated with counseling and behavioral therapies, addressing both the physical and psychological dimensions of addiction. 

It's crucial to recognize that MAT is not a one-size-fits-all solution; its effectiveness varies from person to person. When appropriately combined with counseling and support, MAT becomes a valuable tool in the recovery journey for countless individuals with substance use disorders. Join us at Acadia Healthcare CTCs, where you can make a meaningful difference in the lives of those seeking hope and healing.
