Overview

Fitchburg Comprehensive Treatment Center provides medication-assisted treatment to individuals who are struggling with addictions to opioids.

Our treatment is specialized to meet the needs of men and women, aged 18 and older, who wish to take a comprehensive approach in order to address and treat the emotional and psychological components of addiction. Patients are able to incorporate the following prescription medications into their customized plans of treatment:

Methadone: Prescribed to eliminate the symptoms of withdrawal while keeping cravings for additional opioid use at bay, methadone is an opioid agonist that is a safe option to effectively wean patients off of opioids.

Subutex: With buprenorphine as its main ingredient, Subutex is a partial opioid agonist-antagonist that blocks the effects of opioids within a patient’s brain. When taken, Subutex reduces cravings for continued opioid use while diminishing the symptoms of withdrawal.

Suboxone: Suboxone includes a combination of naloxone and buprenorphine that reduces the symptoms of withdrawal and eliminates 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.
