Manage & Recover from Opioid Use Disorder

Prescription drug abuse and opiate addiction can ravage lives and destroy families. Here at AMS of Wisconsin, LLC Onalaska, we offer intensive treatments for opioid use disorder.

Managing long-term addiction and substance abuse takes time and considerable expertise. Our ongoing treatments include not only medication for opiate use disorder but also detoxification, extensive counseling, and behavioral therapy to ensure a holistic approach to substance use disorder treatment.

There are 23.5 million Americans who have a substance use disorder problem. Eighty-four percent do not have access to the substance use disorder treatment they need.

We strive to increase access to quality outpatient substance abuse and related behavioral health treatment during the day and evening hours. To meet this goal, we offer the following Programs and Services.
