These fees include most services including all counseling and most medical services.

Do you accept insurance?

AMS Delaware does not accept state insurance / Medicaid, however, some private insurance providers may reimburse the patient for out of pocket treatment services.

Is treatment effective?

Over four decades of international scientific research have clearly shown that MEDICATION ASSISTED TREATMENT (MAT) is the safest and most effective treatment currently available to those who are addicted to opioid drugs. As long as the patient carefully follows his or her treatment plan and works with a competent treatment team, he or she can expect to achieve his or her goals and rediscover or achieve healthy living.

How long is the wait?

Most patients can be admitted within 48 hours of contacting us. The admission process normally takes about two hours to complete. Please call (302) 227 - 1320 to schedule admission.

How often will I have to visit the program?

Initially each patient has to report daily. This requirement has been established by State & Federal regulation. However, as progress is made, clinic visits are reduced over time. Most patients are able to quickly resume a normal life since they are not having to spend so much time seeking drugs to avoid being sick due to withdrawals. They find jobs or they are promoted at work as their health improves. Some start or return to school or learn a trade. Family and social relationships strengthen and they find new freedoms to enjoy life again. Travel is possible as medication arrangements can be made with other programs or temporary assistance can be provided through special exception requests.
