San Diego Comprehensive Treatment Centers provide treatment to individuals, aged 18 and older, who are struggling with an addiction to opioids.

Our outpatient medication assisted treatment provides a comprehensive approach to aid individuals in successfully recovering from an opioid addiction. Our centers provide the following medications to be used within our individualized treatment programs:

Methadone: Methadone is prescribed to aid patients in lowering cravings and lessening the intense symptoms that can accompany withdrawal. Since methadone is an opioid agonist, patients will not experience the same euphoric high that they normally do while on opioids. Because of this, patients are able to wean off of opioids without interrupting their daily lives.

Subutex: Utilizing buprenorphine as its main component, Subutex works by hindering the effects of opioids within a patient’s brain. Subutex is a partial opioid agonist-antagonist that is given to reduce opioid cravings, as well as lower withdrawal symptoms.

Suboxone: Composed of naloxone and buprenorphine as its active ingredients, Suboxone is given to diminish opioid cravings, as well as the painful symptoms that often accompany withdrawal. If patients attempt to use opioids while on Suboxone, they will experience extremely uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. Because of this, it is important for patients to cease opioid use once Suboxone treatment has started.

Vivitrol: Vivitrol is a non-narcotic, non-addictive injectable medication that utilizes naltrexone to diminish opioid cravings and lessen withdrawal symptoms.

Since each patient requires an individualized course of treatment, both dosages and specific medications used will vary between patients. Medications can be adjusted throughout the course of treatment should the patient’s needs change. By working with our dedicated physicians, patients will be able to receive the treatment path that best suits their needs.

San Diego Comprehensive Treatment Centers also provide patients with the emotional support required to achieve long-term recovery. Our compassionate team of physicians, nurses, and counselors are dedicated to providing individualized treatment to patients who are struggling with an addiction to opioids. The following therapeutic interventions are offered to patients to help aid in their recovery and journey:

  • Individual counseling sessions provide patients with the opportunity to openly discuss their journey to recovery with a counselor. These private sessions allow patients the chance to communicate their feelings and emotions, as well as ask any questions or discuss any concerns that may arise during the course of treatment.
  • Group counseling sessions are counselor-led sessions that provide patients with the opportunity to come together with others who are also on the road to recovery. These sessions allow patients to receive support and encouragement from others who truly understand the struggles associated with addiction and recovery.

By utilizing the comprehensive treatment available at San Diego Comprehensive Treatment Centers, individuals struggling with opioid addiction can gain the tools necessary in order to achieve the sober, happy, and healthy lives that they deserve to be living.
