Medication Assisted Treatment
Individualized addiction treatment based on sound medical practices works. However all treatment interventions, including medication choices, as well as treatment goals, must be based on the person's personal and medical needs.

Medically Supervised Withdrawal

In addition to being supervised by the physician we offer counseling services to assist with the cessation of the use of mind altering substances (drugs).

Maintenance

Like persons suffering from many other chronic illnesses, some persons have a permanent alteration in their brain functioning and are no longer able to be successful without medication.

Maintenance to Abstinence

The primary goal of the Maintenance to Abstinence Program is to facilitate an individual’s passage through the medication assisted treatment program to abstinence. AMS staff will work with patients from medication initiation, to maintenance, to MSW of the medication, with the ultimate goal being abstinence from all illicit substances and opioid medications. The Maintenance to Abstinence Program is a comprehensive, long-term (approximately two years in length) treatment program, offering a realistic approach within an innovative level of care in the medication assisted treatment continuum of care.

Medication

Choice of medication is based on a mutual decision of both patient and physician. At AMS Delaware, we prescribe methadone and buprenorphine.

Drug Free Traditional Treatment
