Salem Comprehensive Treatment Center provides men and women, aged 18 and older, with all-inclusive treatment for opioid addictions. We understand the importance of providing patients with comprehensive treatment to treat the physical as well as psychological facets of an addiction so that recovery is an achievable goal. The following medications are prescribed within our medication assisted treatment program:

Methadone:Methadone provides patients with relief from the physical symptoms of withdrawal while keeping cravings for additional opioid use at bay. Methadone is a synthetic opioid that allows patients to safely progress in treatment without experiencing any cognitive disruptions. Since methadone will not cause patients to experience a euphoric high, individuals are able to take part in daily activities such as work and school without interruption.

Subutex: Subutex is a partial opioid agonist-antagonist that blocks the effects of opioids within an individual’s brain. Consisting of buprenorphine as its main ingredient, Subutex reduces the symptoms of withdrawal and eliminates cravings for additional opioid use.

Suboxone: Unlike other medications that are prescribed in medication assisted treatment, Suboxone will cause patients to experience the physical symptoms of withdrawal should they attempt to abuse this medication or other substances during the course of treatment. Comprised of a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone, Suboxone reduces the symptoms of withdrawal while eliminating cravings for additional opioid use.

Vivitrol: While the other medications that are prescribed in treatment are typically given daily, Vivitrol is administered via injection once monthly. This medication is a non-narcotic, non-addictive prescription that provides relief from the physical symptoms of withdrawal while ceasing cravings for continued opioid use.

The specific medication that is prescribed as well as the dosage that is given will depend upon the unique needs of each individual patient. By working closely with our team of professionals, patients can have their medication adjusted during treatment when it is necessary.

In addition to the medication assisted treatment that we supply, Salem Comprehensive Treatment Center also provides patients with the opportunity to take part in therapeutic interventions in order to help them progress in treatment. Salem Comprehensive Treatment Center proudly offers the following therapeutic services:

  • Individual therapy sessions allow patients to work individually with one of our highly qualified counselors. These sessions are designed to identify the underlying emotional and behavioral factors that contributed to an individual turning to opioid use in the first place. These sessions also provide patients with the opportunity to work through any issues that may arise throughout the course of treatment.
  • Group counseling sessions bring patients together in a safe and supportive environment in order to discuss a variety of addiction- and recovery-related topics. By working alongside their peers, patients are able to gain insight and support from other individuals who understand the hurdles associated with recovery.

By offering patients comprehensive treatment , Salem Comprehensive Treatment Centers provides patients with the support, treatment, and guidance that is necessary to achieve long-lasting recovery. We are here to assist you in breaking free from the dangerous cycle of addiction.
