About Wausau Comprehensive Treatment Center

Located in Wausau, Wisconsin, Wausau Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC) offers medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for people age 18 and older of all genders. Our Wausau clinic uses a number of medications, including methadone, buprenorphine, Suboxone, and naltrexone, to reduce the effects of withdrawal and eliminate cravings for opioids.

It has been proved that people who take part in MAT achieve better recovery outcomes than those who don’t use medications like methadone or other opioid agonists and partial agonists. The team at our Wausau center understands that these medications affect everyone differently, so they work closely with each patient to make sure that the specific medications they’re using have the appropriate effects.

All aspects of treatment at our Wausau methadone clinic are founded on evidence-based practices that promote full recovery.

Individualized Treatment for Opioid Addiction in Wausau, WI

Every patient who receives care at Wausau CTC gets a personalized treatment plan that includes the use of methadone or another type of medication, as well as group therapy and individual therapy. The impact of opioid addiction is different for everyone, and at our Wausau methadone clinic, we believe that it is important to address the unique experiences of each patient we treat.

The services at our opioid addiction treatment center in Wausau are designed to be as seamless as possible. Before a patient begins treatment, they will take part in a thorough intake process. During this time, their needs will be identified, testing will be done, and their individualized plan of care will be developed.

Supportive & Encouraging Treatment for Opioid Addiction in Wausau

The staff at Wausau CTC believes that services for opioid addiction need to extend beyond the use of medications like methadone.

The team at our methadone clinic in Wausau, Wisconsin, uses individual and group therapies to build on the foundation of recovery. In these therapy sessions, patients have an opportunity to address the ways opioid addiction has impacted their lives while also sharing support with others who have had similar experiences. Learning that they’re not alone removes the feeling of isolation opioid addiction often causes and helps them stay motivated in their recovery.

By receiving medication-assisted treatment at Wausau CTC in Wausau, Wisconsin, patients can get the support and encouragement they need to prevent relapse while also developing the coping skills that will help them be successful in their recovery from opioid addiction.

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.
