Proudly serving Northeast Massachusetts, our methadone clinics provide adults struggling with addiction the ability to recover from heroin, oxycodone, Percocet, and other opiates.

Our Therapeutic Treatments

Therapeutic Treatments for Opioid Abuse

At Northeast Massachusetts Comprehensive Treatment Centers, we provide therapeutic interventions that are designed to complement the effective and safe medications we utilize at our centers. In order to offer our patients the highest chance at obtaining full-fledged recovery from opioid addictions, we feel that it is critical to help them address the emotional and psychological causes that brought on their opioid abuse in the first place. When individuals only obtain care that treats the physical effects of their addictions, they are placed at an increased risk of relapsing. At Northeast Massachusetts Comprehensive Treatment Centers, we work hard to ensure that each of our patients develops the skills necessary to truly defeat their opioid addictions.

Our Therapeutic Interventions

Therapeutic Interventions for Opioid Abuse

When an individual starts abusing opioids like heroin or prescription pain medications, he or she likely does so in response to some form of psychological upset. Should this upset continue to be pervasive in an individual’s life, he or she will likely continue to abuse opioids, and be unable to achieve the lasting recovery he or she desires. Northeast Massachusetts Comprehensive Treatment Centers recognizes that almost all of our patients are burdened with some form of emotional trauma that has continued to fuel their abuse, which is why we remain focused on helping each one of them obtain the care they need to heal and achieve recovery. The manner in which we help patients through the healing process is via the following services:

  • Individual therapy
  • Group therapy

Our counselors are skilled in helping individuals who are grappling with opioid addictions and are capable of leading the therapies listed above with the utmost compassion and effectiveness. The frequency of therapy sessions will be determined based on the treatment needs of the patient, as the care we provide at our centers is unique to each person. We fully believe in the inclusion of individual and group therapy and their ability to help further a patient’s recovery process and provide patients with the skills needed to continue on in life without abusing opioids.

To learn more about the therapeutic interventions we provide, as well as the other programming options that are offered at Northeast Massachusetts Comprehensive Treatment Centers, please call us right now. Our compassionate and caring staff is waiting to help you obtain a life free from substance abuse.
