KINSELLA TREATMENT CENTER

The Kinsella Treatment Center (KTC) is a CARF accredited, Department of Public Health licensed Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) program for opiate-addicted persons utilizing prescribed methadone, Buprenorphine/Suboxone® and supportive counseling in conjunction with other support and referral services. Services are provided by a team of physicians, nurses, counselors, and other professionals. Following detoxification from opiates, the strategy of the MAT program is to utilize opiate substitution medications to minimizing the long-term effects of craving, which for many individuals, creates a high risk for opiate drug use and the subsequent triggering of a new cycle of addiction behavior. Supervised maintenance of opiate substitution medications on a long-term basis minimizes cravings, allowing the person to build time in abstinence and to develop a personal program of successful addiction recovery.

As part of the MAT program, clients participate in individual, group, and family counseling to address drug use, personal, family, social network, employment, health, and legal issues. Treatment of co-occurring psychiatric disorders are included as part of this comprehensive approach to care. All of these issues are important in building a program of stable recovery which will facilitate the individual’s ability to fulfill important life goals. There are decades of research evidence which support the effectiveness of this combined approach to treatment.

Ancillary services include confidential HIV rapid testing. Along with the testing, individuals are provided education on HIV/AIDS, sexually transmitted diseases (STD), Tuberculosis (TB) and safer-sex practices. In addition, the Center for Human Services is federally funded to provide specialized services to address the specific individual needs of HIV/AIDS clients.

DETOXIFICATION PROGRAM

KTC also provides individuals with the option of a six-month methadone detoxification program. The six-month ambulatory detoxification program is available for persons with a history of opiate abuse who desire to be substance free in a shorter period of time. Individual, family and/or group counseling sessions are held once per week and referrals are made to self-help groups both while in treatment and as a form of aftercare.
