Ceres, California is a city in Stanislaus County with a population of 48,706 in the Modesto Metropolitan Statistical Area. The city is named for Ceres, the Roman goddess of agriculture. To recover from opioid addiction, you can find a Ceres CA methadone clinic to begin Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT). MAT is a “whole patient” treatment approach to addiction, which utilizes both methadone and therapy/counseling for recovery. While not all methadone clinics in California offer the psychological side of treatment at their facility, they should be able to refer patients to counselors or organizations that do. MAT is a comprehensive, individualized rehabilitation method that has been proven more effective than either medication or counseling alone. Unfortunately, not all patients on methadone get the full benefit of methadone treatment because they don’t pair it with therapy, which would maximize their chance of long-term success. There is no time limit on recovery needs. Some individuals taper off methadone at 12 months, while some may continue indefinitely. The same is true with counseling and other forms of therapy.
