Trenton Healthcare Clinic

Methadone Clinic and Suboxone Doctor in Trenton, NJ

It’s no secret that Trenton, New Jersey is greatly impacted by the opioid crisis. Trenton Healthcare Clinic, a Recovery Centers of America company, is taking action to curb the impact of opioids on the Trenton community by offering a full range of proven Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) services that include doctor-supervised suboxone treatment as well as monitored maintenance, gradual detoxification,  physical examinations, STD screenings, psychological assessments, substance abuse counseling, and job readiness program.

Methadone Maintenance

Trenton Healthcare Clinic believes in the proven efficacy of methadone as an indispensable treatment option for opiate addiction. Methadone can be used to treat all levels of opiate dependence but is particularly effective for moderate to heavy addiction. Methadone, in combination with counseling, is associated with better treatment outcomes. When used to treat opioid addiction, Methadone is only available at licensed Methadone clinics such as Trenton Healthcare Clinic’s location in Trenton, New Jersey. When taken daily, it can greatly reduce cravings, decrease or eliminate withdrawal symptoms, promote abstinence, and help patients remain productive in day-to-day activities.

Need a Suboxone Doctor?

Trenton Healthcare Clinic’s other MAT option is the administration of doctor-prescribed Suboxone, a partial agonist opioid that’s formulated specifically for the treatment of opiate dependence. Like Methadone, it binds to the brain’s opioid receptors, however, it does not fully stimulate the receptors. Although both medications are proven to be effective for treating opioid dependence, we believe that giving patients a choice, along with the expert guidance of an experienced doctor, can lead to much better recovery outcomes.

Office-Based Opioid Treatment (OBOT) at Trenton

OBOT gives individuals suffering from opioid addiction the opportunity to receive treatment without having to partake in residential inpatient or outpatient services. Trenton Healthcare offers OBOT to provide a flexible and convenient solution for recovery.

Our qualified substance use counselors work with patients to address psychological issues that can contribute to an addiction.

Specialized Programming for Relapse Prevention

Trenton Healthcare Clinic wants to help you break the cycle of relapse with PRISE (Promoting Recovery through Intensive Support and Education). PRISE’s focus is to make sustainable steps towards your life goals while focusing on what has worked to keep you in recovery. In other words, focusing on what has gone right in your recovery, rather than focusing on what has gone wrong. You can use these strengths to propel you forward in your recovery. PRISE is based on three models:

  • Acceptance Commitment Therapy: Learning to let negative emotions go and taking a stand in your recovery by connecting through earlier values.
  • Narrative Therapy: Viewing the problem – not the person – as the problem to apply solutions more easily.
  • Positive Psychology: Through smaller therapy groups and helping others, patients learn gratitude – which energizes them to continue moving forward in their recovery.

As patients make their way through PRISE, the unique curriculum paves the way, serving as both a resource and an educational tool. PRISE patients will continue group and individual therapy sessions. However, PRISE group therapy will consist of only other PRISE patients, resulting in a smaller group. We will teach you the critical tools needed to achieve and maintain long-term recovery, so you can live the life you’ve always wanted.

New Jersey is losing too many lives to the opioid epidemic

“The opioid epidemic continues to devastate families and communities across our state, as we combat this crisis, it is critical that we use data-driven, evidence-based strategies to support individuals suffering from addiction and help them get on the path to recovery,” Gov. Phil Murphy stated in January 2019 following another increase in overdose deaths the previous year. New Jersey newspaper headlines are consistently consumed by the latest drug bust. In August 2019, nearly 30 people were arrested in possession of huge amounts of heroin and fentanyl, enough to kill tens of thousands of people. Sadly, it was too late for some, as the bust was linked to 57 overdoses, 26 of them fatal. That’s why Recovery Centers of America opened Trenton Healthcare Clinic in the heart of Trenton. We want to help those struggling with SUD by providing MAT using Methadone and Suboxone. MAT can mean the difference between someone beating their addiction instead of succumbing to it.
