About Council Bluffs Comprehensive Treatment Center in Council Bluffs, IA

Adults who have been struggling with addiction to heroin, prescription painkillers, or other opioids can receive personalized outpatient care at Council Bluffs Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC). Our center provides medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to adults age 18 and older of all genders.

MAT is a time-tested, research-supported service that incorporates prescription medication and therapy to help patients achieve and maintain recovery from opioid addiction. Years ago, most methadone clinics were only able to offer one form of medication, but patients who choose Council Bluffs CTC may receive methadone, Suboxone, naltrexone, or buprenorphine.

Identifying which medication and dosage level are ideal for each patient is one of the many services our team provides at Council Bluffs CTC in Council Bluffs, Iowa. We conduct thorough assessments to identify our patients’ needs, and we work closely with them to craft the personalized treatment plans that will best prepare them for long-term success.

Therapies Used at Our Council Bluffs Clinic

Methadone and other medications can ease the symptoms of withdrawal, which allows patients to end their opioid use. But achieving long-term recovery from opioid addiction involves more than managing the pain of withdrawal. To help patients acquire the skills and strategies they need to navigate the path of recovery, we offer individual and group therapy.

The therapeutic component of MAT at Council Bluffs CTC is one of the reasons why we call our facility a Comprehensive Treatment Center instead of a methadone clinic. Patients who actively engage in individual and group therapy sessions can gain essential information about opioid addiction and recovery, share support with others who are receiving treatment, and improve their ability to solve problems, resolve conflicts, and resist relapse.

What to Expect at Council Bluffs CTC

Uncertainty about what happens during treatment at a methadone clinic or a Comprehensive Treatment Center can prevent a person from seeking the help they need. At Council Bluffs CTC, we want to dispel any worries adults may have about getting care so that they can focus their full attention on achieving long-term recovery from opioid addiction.

When a new patient arrives at our CTC, they can expect to be greeted warmly, welcomed to our center, and guided through a thorough but efficient intake process. Every step of the way, from their first day throughout their entire time at our facility, they can expect to be treated with respect, valued for their unique perspective, and encouraged to take ownership of their 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.
