Wausau Comprehensive Treatment Center Accredited
Located in Wausau, Wisconsin, Wausau Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC) is one of the leading providers of outpatient medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for adults age 18 and older who are struggling with addictions to opioids. MAT is an evidence-based type of opioid addiction treatment that is backed by decades of research. The successful treatment outcomes that people who have participated in MAT experience have made it one of the most highly recommended forms of treatment for opioid addiction by many medical professionals and respected organizations like the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). The medications used in MAT are all FDA-approved and work by easing the distressing symptoms of withdrawal while also preventing ongoing cravings for opioids. Because cravings are reduced, taking these medications can help people focus on addressing the lifestyle changes they need to make in order to be successful in recovery. At Wausau CTC, we can prescribe multiple MAT medications, including methadone, naltrexone, Suboxone, and buprenorphine. The specific type of medication that a person receives is based on the results of a comprehensive assessment they complete prior to starting treatment. In addition to receiving prescriptions for medication and having the effects of those medications monitored by the experienced professionals on our team, patients at Wausau CTC can also participate in individual and group counseling sessions. Individual sessions give patients time to meet in a confidential setting with one of our team members, while group sessions offer them an opportunity to meet with other individuals who may be facing similar challenges with opioid addictions. In both types of counseling sessions, patients may discuss topics like healthy boundaries, triggers, and relationship conflict. Additionally, patients may use this time to learn and practice coping mechanisms that can help prevent future relapse.
