About Central Jersey Comprehensive Treatment Center in South Amboy, NJ

Adults who have been struggling with opioid addiction can receive personalized outpatient care at Central Jersey Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC), which is located in South Amboy, New Jersey.

Central Jersey CTC provides medication-assisted treatment, or MAT. This type of care uses prescription medication and therapy to help people achieve and maintain long-term recovery from opioid addiction.

Our CTC in South Amboy, New Jersey, serves adults age 18 and older of all genders. Unlike methadone clinics that only offer one type of medication, our CTC can provide patients with methadone, buprenorphine, or naltrexone. These medications allow you to stop using opioids without experiencing the painful withdrawal symptoms that would otherwise occur.

When you start treatment at our CTC in South Amboy, New Jersey, you will complete a thorough evaluation with a medical professional who can answer all your questions about methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone and help you determine which medication is best for you.

Therapies Used at Our Clinic in South Amboy, NJ

Methadone and other medications can be an essential element in treatment for opioid addiction. But medication alone can’t help you make the lifestyle changes that will support successful long-term recovery from opioid addiction. This is why our center in South Amboy, New Jersey, also provides individual and group therapy.

Our therapeutic services are one reason why we refer to our facility as a Comprehensive Treatment Center instead of a methadone clinic.

Individual therapy sessions are confidential, one-on-one discussions with a member of your treatment team. These sessions are ideal opportunities to address important matters you may not yet be comfortable talking about in a group environment.

Group sessions typically involve a small number of adults who are receiving MAT at our center in South Amboy, New Jersey, along with the professional who is leading the session. Groups are safe spaces where you can share support, gain important information about opioid addiction and recovery, and express your thoughts.

What to Expect at Central Jersey CTC in South Amboy, NJ

Our emphasis on personalized service means that no two people will have completely identical experiences while receiving MAT at Central Jersey CTC in South Amboy, New Jersey. But everyone who seeks care for opioid addiction with us can expect to benefit from certain fundamental features and principles.

First, our CTC is a welcoming and supportive place where patients are treated with respect and care is provided without judgment. Our center is a place where the guilt and shame of opioid addiction can give way to the hope and promise of long-term recovery.

Also, treatment at our CTC is not a passive experience. Our professionals will work with you, but they will expect you to play an active role in your treatment so that you can take ownership of your recovery.

When people begin to seek professional help for opioid addiction, the physical benefits of medication often prompt them to initially search for a methadone clinic. At Central Jersey CTC, we’re committed to providing you with a comprehensive experience that includes much more than medication alone.

This place saved my life. Yes it was hard and yes it took time, but you know it's all worth it if you want to change.
