Specializing in the treatment of opioid dependency, North West Wisconsin Comprehensive Treatment Center provides medication assisted treatment to men and women, aged 18 and older, who are in need of comprehensive treatment for their addictions to heroin or prescription pain medications.

North West Wisconsin Comprehensive Treatment Center believes that patients are able to successfully progress towards long-term recovery when they receive care for both the emotional and physical components of their addictions. The following medications are available for patients when they receive treatment at our center:

Methadone:Methadone is an opioid agonist that is a safe option for individuals who are battling an addiction to opioids. This medication provides patients with relief from the physical discomforts of withdrawal while also keeping cravings for additional opioid use at bay.

Subutex: Subutex is a partial opioid agonist-antagonist that includes buprenorphine to block the effects that opioids have on an individual’s brain. When taken, Subutex provides patients with relief from the symptoms of withdrawal while eliminating cravings for continued opioid use.

Suboxone: Suboxone is comprised of naloxone and buprenorphine, and reduces the symptoms of withdrawal while eliminating cravings for continued opioid use. Patients who attempt to abuse Suboxone or other substances during the course of treatment will experience uncomfortable symptoms of withdrawal.

The specific medication that is prescribed as well as the dosage that is administered will be dependent upon the treatment requirements of each individual patient. If necessary, adjustments to medications and dosages can be made during the course of treatment when it is necessary.

Additionally, North West Wisconsin Comprehensive Treatment Center invites patients to take part in the therapeutic services that we offer in order to help them progress in their treatment. We believe that long-term recovery is achieved by addressing and treating both the emotional and physical components of a patient’s addictive behaviors. The following therapeutic interventions are available for patients to incorporate into their comprehensive treatment plan:

  • Individual therapy allows patients the chance to work one-on-one with a highly qualified counselor in order to pinpoint the root causes of their addiction and prepare for a future that is substance-free. These sessions also allow patients to work through any issues or questions that may arise throughout treatment.
  • Group therapy sessions are led by one of our knowledgeable counselors and bring patients together with other individuals who are also working on recovering from addictions. By giving patients the chance to work alongside their peers, they are able to obtain support and encouragement from other patients who understand firsthand the struggles associated with substance abuse.

North West Wisconsin Comprehensive Treatment Center is here to guide towards a life free from the dangers of opioid addiction. Please contact us today to learn more about the services that we offer as well as to answer any questions that you may have regarding our treatment options.
