Providing high quality medication-assisted treatment to individuals aged 18 and older, Ann Arbor Comprehensive Treatment Center assists individuals who are struggling with addictions to opioids by offering the care necessary to achieve lasting recovery.
Our center understands the importance of providing patients with treatment that can serve as a solid foundation for recovery and supplies the following medications within our medication-assisted treatment program:
Methadone: Prescribed to eliminate the symptoms of withdrawal and curb cravings for continued opioid use, methadone is a synthetic medication that safely aids individuals in progressing in their treatment. Methadone will not cause patients to experience the same euphoric high as opioids, which allows individuals to take part in daily activities such as work and school.
Subutex: Subutex includes buprenorphine as its active ingredient and reduces the symptoms of withdrawal while diminishing cravings for additional opioid use. Subutex is a partial opioid agonist-antagonist that blocks the effects of opioids within a patient’s brain.
Suboxone: Comprised of naloxone and buprenorphine, Suboxone works to reduce withdrawal symptoms and eliminate cravings for additional opioid use. Unlike other medications that are prescribed within treatment, Suboxone will cause patients to experience the symptoms of withdrawal should they attempt to abuse opioids during the course of treatment.
The specific medication that is prescribed as well as the dosage given will be dependent upon the needs of each individual patient. Patients can work closely with our medical staff to adjust their medications throughout of the course of treatment if it is necessary.
In addition to the medications that we offer, Ann Arbor Comprehensive Treatment Center also provides patients with therapeutic interventions to help them progress in their recovery. The following therapeutic services are those available for patients to participate in while receiving care at our center:
- Individual therapy sessions allow patients to work one-on-one with a highly trained counselor to address the root causes of their addictive behavior. These sessions promote open communication in a safe and accepting environment. Individual sessions also provide patients with the chance to work through any issues or concerns that may arise throughout the course of treatment.
- Group counseling sessions are led by one of our qualified counselors and allow patients to come together with other individuals who are also working towards recovery. These sessions provide patients with support and encouragement from their peers in a safe and structured setting.
The medication-assisted treatment and therapeutic interventions available through Ann Arbor Comprehensive Treatment Center allow patients to obtain the treatment and support that is necessary in order to achieve lasting recovery. We are here to help you break free from the cycle of opioid abuse and addiction.
