Our Therapeutic Treatments

Therapeutic Treatments for Opioid Abuse

At Fitchburg Comprehensive Treatment Center, we know that making an opioid addiction a thing of the past takes a great deal of work outside of just relieving cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Individuals often find themselves addicted to substances like heroin or prescription pills because of deep-rooted emotional and psychological upset that must be addressed in order for recovery to be achieved. Ignoring these issues and choosing not to acknowledge them can dramatically decrease an individual’s likelihood of continuing on in a healthy and successful recovery. Therefore, the treatment we provide at Fitchburg Comprehensive Treatment Center offers additional therapeutic services that are designed to address each of our patient’s psychological and emotional needs.

Our Therapeutic Interventions

Therapeutic Interventions for Opioid Abuse

For those who are grappling with opioid addictions, it is the emotional pain that is often what keeps them using. In many cases, even when an individual gets relief from his or her cravings and withdrawal symptoms, he or she is left to deal with emotional pain and psychological distress, which can cause him or her to keep using and let go of his or her hope for a recovered life. The team at Fitchburg Comprehensive Treatment Center is committed to aiding women and men towards a recovery that not only includes relief from cravings and withdrawal symptoms, but also from the emotional upset that could stand in the way of long-lasting recovery. Our team of professionals helps our patients accomplish these goals by facilitating the following therapeutic interventions:

  • Group therapy
  • Individual therapy

These types of treatment modalities are supplied by highly trained and understanding counselors who are able to treat those struggling with opioid addictions. The types of therapies provided, along with the frequency of sessions, will be based on the needs of the patient so that he or she obtains the best treatment outcomes possible.
