Trenton Healthcare Clinic Accredited
Trenton Healthcare Clinic believes in the proven efficacy of methadone as an indispensable treatment option for opiate addiction. Methadone can be used to treat all levels of opiate dependence but is particularly effective for moderate to heavy addiction. Methadone, in combination with counseling, is associated with better treatment outcomes. When used to treat opioid addiction, Methadone is only available at licensed Methadone clinics such as Trenton Healthcare Clinic’s location in Trenton, New Jersey. When taken daily, it can greatly reduce cravings, decrease or eliminate withdrawal symptoms, promote abstinence, and help patients remain productive in day to day activities.
Trenton Healthcare Clinic’s other MAT option is administration of doctor prescribed Suboxone, a partial agonist opioid that’s formulated specifically for the treatment of opiate dependence. Like Methadone, it binds to the brain’s opioid receptors, however, it does not fully stimulate the receptors. Although both medications are proven to be effective for treating opioid dependence, we believe that giving patients a choice, along with the expert guidance of an experienced doctor, can lead to much better recovery outcomes.
Our qualified substance use counselors work with patients to address psychological issues that can contribute to an addiction. Thanks to the various types of counseling provided, such as individual counseling, group counseling, and intensive outpatient counseling, our patients learn skills critical for long-term, sustainable recovery. This allows patients to gain insight into their thoughts and behaviors, and develop tools to help prevent relapse.
