About South Nashville Comprehensive Treatment Center in Nashville, TN
South Nashville Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC), which is located in Nashville, Tennessee, is a trusted source of personalized outpatient care for adults age 18 and older of all genders who are struggling with addictions to prescription painkillers, heroin, and other opioids.
South Nashville CTC provides medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to help adults end their opioid use and work toward long-term recovery from opioid addiction. MAT is a science-based, research-supported service that incorporates prescription medication and counseling.
In the decades since MAT was first used in methadone clinics in the United States, it has been closely studied and its effectiveness has been thoroughly documented. Depending on each patient’s specific needs and goals, they may safely take part in MAT for a limited time or on a long-term basis.
What to Expect at South Nashville CTC
Originally, methadone clinics only offered one medication. Today, licensed treatment centers are authorized to offer multiple medications to help adults achieve recovery from opioid addiction. At South Nashville CTC, patients may receive a prescription for methadone, buprenorphine, or Suboxone.
Prior to receiving care at our opioid addiction treatment center, new patients complete a thorough assessment. The assessment process ensures that our team understands the full scope of the patient’s needs so that we can provide the personalized treatment that will best prepare them to achieve improved health and maintain long-term recovery from opioid addiction.
Following their intake assessment, patients meet with a member of our medical staff to receive a prescription for methadone or one of the other medications we offer. This medical professional explains the features and benefits of each of these medications, answers any questions the patient has, and recommends the medication that best fits the patient’s specific circumstances.
Therapies Used at Our South Nashville Clinic
The medication component of treatment in methadone clinics plays a vital role in the effort to help people end their opioid use. When a person takes methadone or another approved medication as directed by a qualified healthcare provider, they can stop using opioids without experiencing the powerful cravings and other distressing withdrawal symptoms that would otherwise occur.
But medication alone cannot address the concerns that may have contributed to a person’s opioid use in the first place, nor can it empower people to make the lifestyle changes that will support their successful pursuit of long-term opioid addiction recovery.
For these reasons, patients who receive care at our opioid addiction treatment center in Nashville, Tennessee, also take part in individual and group counseling sessions. During counseling sessions, patients can gain valuable information about opioid addiction and recovery, develop the skills and strategies that can help them avoid relapse, and share support with others who are also receiving treatment for opioid addiction.
When you’re ready to get the treatment you need to build a solid foundation for long-term recovery from opioid addiction, we are here for you.
