Acadia recently acquired the four CTCs from Georgia-based Brand New Start Treatment Centers.
CTCs provide medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for adults who have been struggling with addictions to heroin, prescription painkillers, and other opioids. The four outpatient treatment centers, which are all located within 40 miles of Atlanta, are:
- Cumming Comprehensive Treatment Center, 514 W. Maple St., Suite 1206, Cumming
- Loganville Comprehensive Treatment Center, 3543 Highway 81, Suite 201, Loganville
- Dallas Comprehensive Treatment Center, 311 White Ingram Parkway, Suite 500, Dallas
- Woodstock Comprehensive Treatment Center, 270 Heritage Walk, Woodstock
“We are excited to have the opportunity to play a critical role in ending the opioid epidemic in our community,” said Erin McCarthy, regional vice president of Comprehensive Treatment Centers. “These CTCs will provide personalized treatment that can help adults achieve long-term recovery from opioid addictions. From admission to discharge, our patients will receive first-class care in an atmosphere of dignity and respect.”
Outpatient treatment at all four CTCs will incorporate medication and therapy. Following a thorough assessment and a consultation with one of the center’s doctors, patients may receive a prescription for methadone or buprenorphine. When used as directed within the context of a licensed medication-assisted treatment program, these medications allow individuals to end their opioid use without experiencing the powerful cravings and painful withdrawal symptoms that would otherwise occur.
In addition to receiving daily medication, CTC patients will also participate in individual and group therapy. These sessions can help individuals identify and address factors that may have contributed to their opioid use and other self-defeating behaviors.
All four CTCs will be open Monday-Friday, 5:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m., and Saturday-Sunday, 7:00-9:00 a.m. Medication hours are 5:30-11:30 a.m. during the week and 7:00-9:00 a.m. on Saturdays. The CTCs are closed on Sundays. However, they accept calls for admission appointments 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
