About Claymont Comprehensive Treatment Center in Claymont, DE

Located in Claymont, Delaware, Claymont Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC) provides medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to adults age 18 and older of all genders. Not only do our patients receive the support of medications such as methadone, but they also participate in individual therapy as part of medication-assisted treatment.

MAT is scientifically proven to lead to better treatment outcomes. Most methadone clinics offer one kind of medication to help patients stop using opioids. At Claymont CTC, we use both methadone and buprenorphine to reduce the distressing pain and cravings associated with opioid withdrawal.

Our compassionate team of professionals works closely with every patient at Claymont CTC to identify the most beneficial medication dosage levels and therapeutic interventions for them.

Therapies Used at Our Claymont Clinic

At Claymont Comprehensive Treatment Center, we offer more support than you would find at other methadone clinics, with patients taking part in individual therapy in addition to receiving medications such as methadone to help them stop their opioid use.

Meeting one-on-one with a counselor gives our patients the opportunity to work through the experiences and concerns that may have led them to start using opioids in the first place. The opioid addiction treatment we provide empowers our patients to begin processing the painful emotions or traumatic events that may have kept them from recovery.

Our experienced counselors work with every patient to provide them with healthier coping tools to prevent relapse after treatment. The compassionate, professional care we offer each patient helps them regain control of their life and successfully transition back to their home and community.

Individualized Treatment for Opioid Addiction in Claymont, DE

No two people have identical experiences with opioid addiction, which is why it is crucial to find a methadone clinic that can personalize your plan of care to reflect your unique situation. The caring staff at Claymont Comprehensive Treatment Center respects the diverse backgrounds that influence each of our patient’s experiences with opioid addiction.

Because recovery is such an individual process, we take the time to learn about every patient’s medical history and the way opioid addiction has affected their life. We work closely with each person to identify the medication and therapeutic interventions that will lead to the best outcomes for that patient.

We offer a proven combination of individual therapy and medication such as methadone to help our patients set the groundwork for lifelong recovery.

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.
