COVID 19/Corona virus
Due to the current and ongoing emergency situation with the COVID 19/Coronavirus, AMS is working diligently to implement additional measures during this emergency. With the cancelling of schools and business and social distancing, this will have a direct effect on our operations. As of this time, our facilities are planning to remain open. Patients are reminded that children/visitors are restricted from visiting the clinic in response to the state of emergency. Please call before arriving to coordinate with staff if this will have a direct impact and we will work with you to find the correct solution. During this time, we are suspending group counseling and will be supporting the choice of Telehealth solutions for individual sessions. We are also taking additional precautions including frequent sanitizing of the clinic. As more information becomes available, it will be shared. If you are experiencing an increase in any symptoms, please contact staff
While every effort will be made to keep this information accurate, please remember that each clinic may need to adjust this information for their circumstances.

We provide medication assisted treatment in addition to counseling services designed to improve the quality of life of those suffering from addiction.
Services begin with a comprehensive evaluation by trained medical and counseling personnel experienced in the treatment of addiction.
Based on the evaluation, we design a custom treatment plan tailored to each individual’s specific needs and circumstances.
The treatment plan may include the use of FDA approved medications such as methadone or buprenorphine (in the form of film or tablet).
Evidence-based cognitive behavioral and motivational counseling services are also provided based on the level of need up to and including an intensive outpatient program.

Anyone can become addicted. Drugs don’t care where you live or what you do. Taken in sufficient quantity, you will become addicted.
Opiates are addicting no matter how they might be used. While many people think of opiate addicts as “IV- needle users,” most are persons who have never considered using a needle. Addiction can grow from smoking, sniffing, and swallowing narcotic drugs.
Less than 10-20% of those needing help ever get it. Far too many persons experience a downward spiral until their lives are destroyed or worse. Sadly, death from overdose, suicide, or other medical complications ends the life of an opiate-addicted person.
Associated health risks with particularly risk of HIV, HCV relative to IV drug abuse
Contraindicated medications, possibly psychotropic medication interactions and the need to coordinate care between medical professionals.
