Proudly serving Southeast Massachusetts, our methadone clinics provide adults struggling with addiction the ability to recover from heroin, oxycodone, Percocet, and other opiates.

Our Therapeutic Treatments

Therapeutic Treatments for Opioid Abuse

We, at Southeast Massachusetts Comprehensive Treatment Centers, understand the complexities associated with recovering from opioid addiction. We recognize that defeating an addiction extends beyond the act of ceasing use of a substance. In order to successfully achieve lasting recovery, patients must obtain treatment for both the physical and the psychological components of their addiction. In addition to treating the physical symptoms of withdrawal through medication assisted treatment, we provide patients with the opportunity to address and treat the underlying factors that may have contributed to their addictive behaviors in the first place through the use of therapeutic interventions.

Our Therapeutic Interventions

Therapeutic Interventions for Opioid Abuse

Many individuals find that the emotional factors that accompany their addictive behaviors are strenuous enough to keep them trapped in a dangerous cycle of substance abuse. Despite taking part in treatment to alleviate the painful symptoms of withdrawal while eliminating cravings for additional substance use, patients often struggle with emotional and psychological pain that can trigger them to relapse. The team of medical experts at Southeast Massachusetts Comprehensive Treatment Centers is dedicated to providing individuals with relief from the physical symptoms of withdrawal while also providing treatment for the emotional component as well. The following therapeutic interventions are available for patients to utilize in order to further the likelihood of achieving lasting recovery:

  • Individual therapy
  • Group therapy

These treatment options are led by our experienced counselors who are specifically trained in the fields of addiction and recovery. The frequency at which a patient will take part in therapy sessions will be based upon their individual needs and treatment requirements.
