About Shelbyville Comprehensive Treatment Center in Shelbyville, KY

Located in Shelbyville, Kentucky, Shelbyville Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC) offers medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to people age 18 and older of all genders. We use several medications to reduce opioid cravings and withdrawal symptoms, including methadone, buprenorphine, Suboxone, and naltrexone.

Patients who take part in MAT start to function more like themselves again, allowing them to transition back to their daily lives. Depending on their individual circumstances, many patients begin to rebuild relationships with loved ones, find employment, and start connecting with their communities again.

The expert team at our Shelbyville methadone clinic understands that the various medications we use affect each patient differently. We work closely with every person who seeks opioid addiction treatment at our center to ensure that they receive the medication that best fits their needs and recovery goals.

Our Treatment Therapies

At Shelbyville Comprehensive Treatment Center, we understand that achieving recovery from opioid addiction involves more than just medications like methadone. We combine these medications at our CTC in Shelbyville, Kentucky, with individual and group therapies as part of the treatment process.

Our methadone clinic helps patients identify and address the root causes of their opioid use so that they have a better understanding of why they may have developed an addiction to opioids in the first place. The team members at our center also provide every patient with healthier coping tools and the skills they need to prevent future relapse.

The goal of taking part in therapy at our CTC is for patients to make the necessary positive changes in their lives that set the groundwork for lasting recovery.

What to Expect at Shelbyville Comprehensive Treatment Center

We designed the admissions process at our Shelbyville methadone clinic to be as seamless as possible to make sure that every patient gets timely care when they need it most.

Every patient takes part in a detailed intake process before they begin treatment at Shelbyville CTC. Patients can expect to discuss their medical history and the nature and severity of their symptoms with a member of our team. They’ll also take part in a physical exam and a series of testing.

During this time, they are also welcome to ask any questions they might have about our admissions process and the care we provide. Once a patient completes the intake process, our team creates their individualized plan of care, which we tailor to address their specific challenges, needs, and recovery goals.

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.
