About BHG Knoxville Citico Treatment Center

Citico Treatment Center specialized in treating opiate-based drug problems and so can offer detox treatments that employ the latest research findings in the addiction’s field. Program staff are committed to helping individuals and families take back their lives from the scourge of opiate abuse and addiction.

Our program is an official SAMHSA-Certified Opioid Treatment Program, which means we place a high priority on delivering quality services based on established treatment standards. If you’ve been struggling with opiate abuse and addiction for months or years and see little hope in site, Citico Treatment Center can help you take positive steps towards living a drug-free life.

Treatment Options

The longer an opiate abuse problem goes untreated, the greater the damage done to the brain’s systems. In cases of chronic and long-term opiate abuse, withdrawal effects tend to last long after the detox stage ends. Also known as post acute withdrawal, these effects account for why so many people relapse shortly after completing detox.

For these reasons, the BHG Knoxville Treatment Center uses medication-assisted therapies during the detox stage. In effect, medication therapies help restore a normal chemical balance in the brain, which results in considerable relief from opiate withdrawal effects.

Medication-assisted treatment options offered include:

  • Outpatient methadone detox
  • Outpatient buprenorphine detox
  • Outpatient Suboxone detox
  • Methadone maintenance therapy (for post acute withdrawal effects)

As far as treatment duration goes, each person is different. Addiction severity also influences treatment duration and outcome. As a general rule, a minimum of a year in treatment offers the best therapeutic effects in terms of being able to maintain long-term abstinence from drug use.


When embarking on any type of major life change, there’s a need for some level of structure and direction in order to reach your desired goal. This is especially true when battling an opiate abuse problem. For these reasons, BHG Knoxville Citico Treatment Center administers a set of program policies, all of which work to help you get a feel for living drug-free on a day-to-day basis.

While the physical discomfort that comes with opiate detox can be debilitating on its own, the addiction mindset takes a toll all its own. Implementing program policy is yet another way of countering the destructive thinking and behavior patterns that addiction leaves behind.

Our program policies include the following:

  • Personal accountability
  • Respectful behavior towards others
  • No alcohol or drugs on the premises
  • Cannot be under the influence of drugs or alcohol while on the premises

While overcoming opiate addiction can be challenging, stopping opiate abuse is a necessary first step towards wellness. Citico Treatment Center offers the types of specialized treatment supports that make a drug-free life possible.

While medication-assisted therapies do a good job at relieving uncomfortable detox withdrawal effects, chronic opiate abuse breeds a mindset that’s come to depend on opiate effects to cope with daily life. If left untreated, a high risk for relapse remains in spite of the therapeutic benefits that medication therapies provide.

BHG Knoxville Citico Treatment Center offers several types of behavior-based treatment interventions, all of which work to eliminate the addiction-based mindset and promote healthy thinking and behavior. Amenity services offered include:

  • Individual psychotherapy
  • Stress/anger management training
  • Group therapy
