About El Cajon Comprehensive Treatment Center in El Cajon, CA
El Cajon Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC) provides medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to people who are struggling with opioid addiction. Our center in El Cajon, California, integrates medications and counseling to treat opioid use disorder, which is the clinical term for opioid addiction. We serve adults age 18 and older of all genders.
MAT is an evidence-based practice that has been used for decades in methadone clinics. Research has documented that it is a highly effective way to treat opioid addiction. It is supported by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) for this purpose. Our clinic uses MAT to help patients establish a solid foundation for long-term recovery from opioid addiction.
Therapies Used at Our El Cajon Methadone Clinic
Methadone clinics have the reputation of offering only methadone to address opioid use disorder. At our CTC, we use methadone, buprenorphine, Suboxone, and naltrexone to aid in recovery. These medications are all approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat opioid addiction. They help ease the withdrawal process and are also used for long-term maintenance. Each person reacts differently to different medications, so it is important for a qualified professional to decide which one is right for you.
Our treatment center also provides both individual and group therapy. Counseling helps you explore the emotional and behavioral aspects of opioid addiction and can provide you with insights into why you may have started using opioids in the first place. Counseling also gives you a chance to develop coping skills and learn new behaviors that encourage lifelong recovery.
What to Expect at El Cajon CTC
At El Cajon CTC, we create a treatment experience that is more than you might expect from a methadone clinic. When you start treatment with us, we will talk to you about your current concerns, medical history, and drug use history. We will also conduct a routine physical examination and drug screening to get a picture of your physical health. This helps us create a personalized treatment plan just for you that is designed to help you succeed.
We know that recovery from opioid addiction begins with reaching out for help. Our El Cajon center can assist you so that you do not have to go it alone. We believe that you can make positive changes and live your best life.
