Southeast Massachusetts Comprehensive Treatment Centers provides medication assisted treatment to individuals, aged 18 and older, who are struggling with an addiction to opioids.

By utilizing prescription medications that are specifically designed to assist individuals in the process of withdrawal, patients are able to safely progress toward lasting recovery under the supervision of our medical team. The following prescription medications are available for patients to utilize within their treatment plans at Southeast Massachusetts Comprehensive Treatment Centers:

Methadone: As an opioid agonist, methadone works by eliminating the symptoms of withdrawal while keeping cravings for continued opioid use at bay. Since methadone does not cause a euphoric high when consumed, patients are able to progress in treatment while taking part in daily obligations, such as work and school.

Subutex: Using buprenorphine as its active component, Subutex is a partial opioid agonist-antagonist that blocks the effects of opioids within the brain. Because of this, patients experience a reduction in cravings for additional opioid use as well as a decrease in the uncomfortable physical symptoms of withdrawal.

Suboxone: Utilizing a combination of naloxone and buprenorphine, Suboxone eliminates both cravings for continued opioid use and the symptoms of withdrawal. Unlike other medications that are prescribed during treatment, Suboxone will cause individuals to experience withdrawal symptoms should they attempt to abuse opioids during the course of treatment.

The medication that is prescribed, as well as the dosage that is given, will vary based on the individual needs of each patient. By working closely with our medical team, patients will be prescribed the appropriate medication and dosage depending on their treatment needs. Medications can be altered throughout the course of treatment if needed.

Southeast Massachusetts Comprehensive Treatment Centers also provide patients with the opportunity to take part in therapeutic interventions in order to increase the likelihood that lasting recovery will be achieved. By working closely with our dedicated counselors, patients are able to take part in the following therapeutic services:

  • Individual therapy sessions provide patients with the opportunity to work with one of our highly qualified counselors in order to address and treat the underlying causes of their addiction. These sessions provide patients with a safe and supportive atmosphere in which to openly discuss their emotions, achievements, and setbacks.
  • Group therapy sessions are counselor-led sessions that bring patients together in order to discuss an array of topics in a safe environment. Patients are able to receive support and encouragement from other individuals who understand firsthand the struggles associated with addiction and recovery.

The treatment provided by Southeast Massachusetts Comprehensive Treatment Centers allows patients to find relief from the physical as well as the emotional components of their addiction. Our knowledgeable staff of medical professionals helps patients progress throughout treatment in order to successfully achieve lasting recovery.
