ABOUT LINCOLN TREATMENT CENTER

Located in the city of Lincoln, Neb., Lincoln Treatment Center provides specialized, outpatient-based treatment for adults recovering from opioid dependency. One of 11 locations operated by Riverwood Group, LLC across seven states, Lincoln Treatment Center offers a medication-assisted treatment (MAT) regimen, as well as outpatient-based counseling sessions.

The Center is fully licensed by the State of Nebraska, Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Before beginning treatment, clinicians perform an initial substance abuse history assessment and physical evaluation to determine an effective MAT dosage and ensure the outpatient-based program is an appropriate level of care. Lincoln Treatment Center utilizes methadone, an opioid agonist that's proven-effective at alleviating the physical discomfort associated with opioid withdrawal, as well as curbing opioid cravings. It is one of only 10 outpatient facilities in Nebraska to offer methadone treatment.

In addition to the MAT, Lincoln Treatment Center also facilitates clinician-led group, individual, and family counseling sessions to address the emotional and psychological contributors of addiction. Through these counseling sessions, clients may learn new coping techniques, methods for trigger avoidance, stress management skills, methods for regulating emotions, and how to develop community-based support networks.

Throughout treatment, clients are required to attend the scheduled counseling sessions and submit to random drug testing, as required by federal regulations. To follow the progress of each client, individuals are reassessed every 90 days and undergo physical evaluation once per year. Although there is no specific time-table for the program, Lincoln Treatment Center's website states that most methadone programs lasts between two and three years, though some individuals may complete the program within as little as a few months.

The facility's website also notes that they coordinate services with mental health and substance abuse treatment providers within the Lincoln area, and surrounding communities.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

Lincoln Treatment Center employs a team of substance abuse counselors, nurses, pharmacists, and physicians experienced in the field of addiction medicine and licensed by the Nebraska Department of Human Services. In the state, the facility is also among the 41.6 percent of facilities accredited by CARF.

"This place is OK sometimes it's kind of crowded other than now the people are very friendly the counters are very nice they helped me out when I wish very very low in my life" wrote alum Brian.

The program I entered was a partial hospitalization program, meaning that I was at the program 8 hours a day. I still used my own housing and provided my own meals, which was appropriate for my situation. The facility also has full-time care, but I didn't see what they were like.
