Proudly serving the Medford, Oregon community, our Methadone clinic provides adults struggling with addiction the ability to recover from Fentanyl, heroin, oxycodone, and other opiates.

Understanding Addiciton

Understanding Addiction and Substance Abuse Recovery

Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid narcotic that is commonly compared to morphine due to its ability to treat severe and chronic pain in patients who are experiencing pain after a medical procedure. When taken, fentanyl increases the levels of dopamine that are released by binding to the opiate receptors in the brain which causes individuals to experience feelings of intense relaxation and euphoria. These enticing side effects often cause individuals to consume this medication recreationally. Recreational use of fentanyl can quickly result in addiction. Once an individual becomes addicted to fentanyl, he or she may feel overwhelmed and discouraged. However, overcoming an addiction to fentanyl is possible.

Medford Comprehensive Treatment Center understands the challenges associated with an addiction to fentanyl.

Through the use of our medication-assisted treatment program, patients are able to safely treat the physical symptoms of withdrawal while progressing towards a future free from abuse. This form of treatment uses specific prescription medications that are formulated to safely eliminate the physical discomforts of withdrawal while keeping cravings for continued fentanyl use at bay. When taken as directed, use of these medications are extremely safe and effective. In addition to medication-assisted treatment, Medford Comprehensive Treatment Center proudly provides patients with the opportunity to incorporate the use of therapeutic interventions into their treatment. These sessions are designed to treat the external causes of an individual’s addictive behaviors so that recovery may occur.

The compassionate staff of medical experts at Medford Comprehensive Treatment Center is here to assist you or someone that you love in safely breaking free from the chains of addiction. Our comprehensive treatment approach provides patients with the treatment, support, and education that are required in order to safely progress towards recovery.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-Assisted Treatment for Opioid Abuse

Medford Comprehensive Treatment Center supplies outpatient treatment to men and women ages 18 and older who are battling an addiction to fentanyl. Our dedicated staff of physicians, nurses, and counselors provides patients with the highest quality of treatment from the moment that they walk through our doors. Patients are invited to develop a customized plan of treatment that encompasses their unique and individual treatment needs. The following prescription medications and therapeutic interventions are available for patients to incorporate into their treatment plan:

Methadone: Methadone provides patients with relief from the physical discomforts of withdrawal while also diminishing cravings for additional fentanyl use. Patients who are prescribed this medication are able to actively play a role in daily activities such as work, driving, and school without impairment or delay. Extensive clinical research has confirmed the safety and effectiveness of methadone in the treatment of addiction.

Suboxone: Using a combination of naloxone and buprenorphine, Suboxone alleviates the physical symptoms of withdrawal while keeping cravings for continued fentanyl use at bay. First approved in 2002 by the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Suboxone also protects patients against overdose and abuse without causing cognitive impairments.

Subutex (Buprenorphine): Using buprenorphine as its primary active ingredient, Subutex alleviates the physical discomforts of withdrawal while eliminating cravings for additional fentanyl use. The majority of patients who begin treatment by taking Subutex will later transition onto Suboxone if treatment maintenance is required.

Individual therapy: In order for lasting recovery to be achieved, patients must treat the physical and psychological components of their addiction. For this reason, Medford Comprehensive Treatment Center proudly provides patients with the opportunity to incorporate the use of individual therapy into their treatment plan. These one-on-one sessions provide patients with the ability to address and treat the root causes of their addiction while working through any issues that may arise during the course of treatment. Once a patient understands what led them to abuse fentanyl in the first place, preparing for a substance-free future becomes obtainable.

Group therapy: Like individual therapy, group therapy provides patients with the opportunity to openly discuss their emotions and experiences in a safe and supportive environment. These counselor-led sessions bring patients together to work alongside other individuals who are also receiving treatment for addiction. By working with their peers, patients are able to receive the support and encouragement that are required in order to progress towards recovery.
