Western Pennsylvania Comprehensive Treatment Centers provides individuals aged 18 and older with outpatient treatment for opioid addiction.

Our medication assisted treatment offers patients the opportunity to experience relief from the physical symptoms of withdrawal while progressing towards a future that is substance free. The following prescription medications are available for patients to incorporate into their comprehensive plans of treatment:

Methadone: Methadone is a synthetic medication that provides patients with relief from the physical symptoms of withdrawal while eliminating cravings for continued opioid use. When taken as prescribed, the use of methadone is extremely safe and effective in the treatment of opioid dependency. Methadone will not cause patients to experience feelings of euphoria, which allows them to productively play a role in their recovery.

Subutex: Using buprenorphine as its active ingredient, Subutex eliminates withdrawal symptoms while keeping cravings for continued opioid use at bay. Subutex is a partial opioid agonist-antagonist that blocks the effects that opioids have within a patient’s brain while allowing him or her to productively take part in daily activities such as work, driving, and school.

Suboxone: Utilizing a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone, Suboxone eliminates painful symptoms of withdrawal while diminishing cravings for continued opioid use. Unlike other medications available in treatment, use of Suboxone will cause patients to experience withdrawal symptoms should they attempt to abuse opioids during the course of treatment.

The specific medication that is prescribed, as well as the dosage administered, will vary between patients based upon their unique treatment requirements. Adjustments to medications can be made if necessary throughout the course of treatment.

In addition to medication assisted treatment, Western Pennsylvania Comprehensive Treatment Centers also provides patients with the opportunity to take part in therapeutic interventions which are designed to increase the likelihood that lasting recovery will occur. The following therapeutic services are available for patients to incorporate into their treatment:

  • Individual therapy sessions provide patients with the opportunity to work one-on-one with a highly qualified counselor in order to address and treat the root causes of their addictive behaviors. Once patients understand what led them to abuse opioids in the first place, preparing for a substance-free future becomes a reality. Individual therapy sessions also provide patients with a chance to work through any questions or issues that may arise during treatment.
  • Group therapy brings multiple patients together within a single session. These counselor-led sessions promote open and safe communication between patients in order to help them progress in treatment in a supportive environment. Patients are given the opportunity to provide each other with encouragement and support, which serves to aid in the recovery process.

By taking a comprehensive approach to treatment, patients are given the opportunity to address both the emotional and physical aspects of their addictions to opioids. At Western Pennsylvania Comprehensive Treatment Centers, we encourage patients to work closely with our team of professionals in order to develop customized plans of treatment that meet their unique goals and requirements. We are here to assist you in safely retuning to a life free from the dangers of opioid addiction.
