Addiction Medicine

Our medical staff provide ongoing Addiction Medicine Treatment to patients who need medication assisted support to be successful in recovery.

We work with physicians specializing in addiction medicine to help treat symptoms of withdrawal. Addiction medications are prescribed to help reduce cravings and desires to use alcohol and other drugs. 

Our team initially sets-up a physician assessment for an individual experiencing withdrawal symptoms. Once approved by a Board Certified Addiction Specialist, treatment can begin using a specialized withdrawal protocol designed to provide one with comfort in the withdrawal stages and prevent cravings. 

For example: A patient who is alcohol dependent and having difficulty succeeding in outpatient treatment because of cravings or a strong desire to use alcohol can be assessed by ACI physicians; they then prescribe Campril which is a non-addictive medication that reduces cravings. This medication can help the patient to maintain abstinence while they participate in counseling services and learn how to live a lifestyle without alcohol. 

Addiction medicine services are utilized by our patients who need medication assisted treatment for extra support while they recover.

"I used to be a successful teacher. I was proud of myself and my achievements. I started using drugs and hit rock bottom. Then a friend took me to ACI. I went to detox and rehab. I am currently enrolled in the outpatient program and am doing great. I love where I am living and I love the staff at ACI. I am so grateful for the fellowship I have with my peers. I look forward to going to groups, seeing my counselors and the friends that I made. My favorite thing is “Jump Start Café” on Friday morning. I am learning how to have fun without using. I finally feel lucky to be alive.”
