About Gifford Street Comprehensive Treatment Center in New Bedford, MA
Gifford Street Comprehensive Treatment Center serves adults in the New Bedford, Massachusetts, area who can benefit from personalized outpatient treatment for opioid addiction. Our center provides medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to adults age 18 and older of all genders.
MAT is a research-supported form of treatment that includes prescription medications to ease opioid withdrawal symptoms and counseling to address the behavioral, emotional, and social aspects of opioid addiction and recovery.
When MAT was first used in the U.S., methadone clinics were limited to one type of medication. Today, facilities such as Gifford Street Comprehensive Treatment Center in New Bedford, Massachusetts, can provide patients with multiple medication options.
Following a thorough assessment, patients who take part in treatment with us may receive a recommendation for methadone, Suboxone, buprenorphine, or naltrexone.
Therapies Used at Our New Bedford Clinic
Methadone and the other medications we provide allow a person to stop using opioids without experiencing the severe distress of opioid withdrawal. For many people, the opportunity to receive medication is what prompts them to seek treatment at a methadone clinic. But when adults enter treatment at our facility in New Bedford, they benefit from a wide range of additional services.
For example, patients at Gifford Street Comprehensive Treatment Center in New Bedford may participate in both individual and group counseling sessions. Individual sessions are confidential treatment environments that feature focused feedback, while group sessions allow participants to interact and share support with others who are working to establish a foundation for recovery. Both types of counseling sessions can play a vital role in the effort to prepare a person for long-term recovery from opioid addiction.
