CMG operates a number of nationally recognized and accredited methadone treatment centers dedicated to helping these individuals and their families regain control of their lives. Addiction is recognized as a chronic disease by the World Health Organization, the American Medical Association, the National Institute of Drug Addiction, the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment and many others. As such, addiction has been clinically proven to be managed with appropriate medication and counseling. Our comprehensive treatment programs begin with a detailed psychological assessment and initial treatment plan at induction. Our highly skilled staff then guides patients through a medically supervised stabilization period that integrates individual, group and family counseling along with state of the art medication treatments such as methadone and Suboxone, followed by continuing outpatient care throughout the medical maintenance phase. When the treatment plan is followed, and the medications are taken as directed, this treatment philosophy is proven to suppress symptoms of opiate withdrawal, decrease cravings for opiates, reduce illicit opiate use, block the effects of other opiates, and assist patients in staying committed to treatment and a lifestyle of recovery. We take great pride in treating our patients with dignity and respect in each phase of their treatment experience.
Methadone, as an opiate, is a central nervous system depressant and is not a cure for opiate addiction. It is a pharmacological tool which suppresses withdrawal symptoms, lessens the cravings for opiates and coupled with counseling, facilitates those interpersonal interactions involved in strengthening motivations, changing lifestyles and breaking the cycle of life patterns and stress reactions underlying relapse. Methadone is a long acting, synthetic drug first used for the treatment of drug addiction in the United States in the 1960’s. It has a 40-year history of demonstrated success in the treatment of opiate addiction. When used in proper doses in maintenance treatment, methadone does not create euphoria, sedation or an analgesic effect. Doses must be individually determined by the medical staff. Methadone maintenance is a long-term treatment for opiate addictions of all types. There is no specific length of time in a medicated assisted program that is best for everyone. Since methadone programs are voluntary, the length of time spent in treatment depends greatly on the patient. The longer you stay in treatment, the greater your chances for success. Initially, the patient must visit the clinic regularly and receive his/her medication, yet over time the successful patient earns privileges. These can include fewer clinic visits and eligibility for take home medications as allowed by your state regulations. This allows many patients to lead normal, productive lives, working and caring for their families and enjoying an active social life; all on an outpatient basis so your life is minimally disrupted.
