Medication Assisted Treatment

The choice of medication is based on a mutual decision between the patient and the physician. At AMS of Wisconsin, LLC Onalaska, we prescribe methadone or buprenorphine, either in the form of film or tablet.

Program management

Medically Managed Detoxification

Individuals early in their addiction who desire to be safely detoxed from addictive substances can do so comfortably under the supervision of trained medical personnel while receiving supportive counseling focused on “staying clean.”

Maintenance

Addiction is a chronic disease process that can, and often does, cause permanent alterations of brain chemistry, requiring maintenance medications that AMS of Wisconsin, LLC Onalaska provides in addition to cognitive, behavioral, and motivational enhancement counseling. Maintenance medications include methadone and buprenorphine in the form of a film or tablet.

Maintenance to Abstinence

Our Maintenance to Abstinence Program’s goal is to facilitate an individual’s passage through medication-assisted treatment to abstinence. AMS of Onalaska’s professional staff will work with a patient to initiate medication-assisted treatment to stabilize and then work through Medically Supervised Detoxification with an ultimate goal of total 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.

Counseling Services

AMS of Wisconsin, LLC Onalaska offers a flexible, multi-level Outpatient Program for patients who are seeking effective abstinence-based treatment for addictions. Our state-licensed Outpatient Program is designed for patients who do not require (or who have completed) Detoxification, Residential Treatment, or Day Treatment. We offer outpatient groups throughout the week, making this level of care an excellent choice for those who work. We also offer weekly family groups, which provide education and support to patients' loved ones in treatment. We offer three levels of care and use the American Society of Addiction Medicine’s Patient Placement Criteria to determine what level of care is indicated in a particular case. The levels offered at AMS of Wisconsin, LLC Onalaska, are Intensive Outpatient, Outpatient, and Aftercare.
