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 firmly believe that ACI is why my son is still alive, back with our family, and back to school. As a mother my primary concern was that my son would receive compassionate care and the attention he needed to focus on his recovery. We have been through this before and I was losing hope, so was my son. It is a very lonely and dark place to be. All ACI staff, doctors, nurses, and counselors were always available when I had questions. We were able to visit and we had a family therapy session where I learned that I had to take care of myself too, without feelings of guilt. We also learned how to set limits and boundaries. At last, freedom, from the emotional pain of being part of an addicted family. My son learned the skills he needs to sustain his sobriety. He learned about the importance of maintaining sober friends and activities. He learned how to say no and change the things in his life that kept holding him back from happiness, health, and success. Thank you ACI I have my son back!”
