Community Medical Services (CMS) operates a network of a CARF-accredited clinics that provide Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) for opioid addicts. CMS was founded in Phoenix, Arizona in 1983 and now owns additional clinics in Glendale, Tuscon and Mesa. Its Phoenix and Tuscon clinics provide treatment with Suboxone and methadone; the Mesa and Glendale clinics use methadone only. In 2009, CMS began operations in Montana and in 2016, opened additional clinics in North Dakota and Alaska.
Treatment and Staff
Prospective clients first have a phone assessment. If they’re suitable for treatment, CMS then schedules an in-person assessment within seven days. After their assessments, clients are given a treatment plan utilizing either methadone or Suboxone, with recommendations for group and individual therapy at the clinic. Clients must attend group or individual therapy at least once a month, but most are asked to come at least once a week.
Physicians administer medication, and therapists and addiction counselors, including LCSWs, LPCs and LISACs, run the treatment groups. The foundation of treatment at CMS is Moral Recognition Therapy (MRT) and groups also incorporate CBT skills and Motivational Interviewing (MI). The treatment team may address co-occurring disorders in therapy, but most clients in need of dual diagnosis support are referred to local mental health clinics. The treatment team may also recommend peer support meetings such as 12-step or SMART Recovery if a client would like to expand their support network.
Methadone clients must come to the clinic every day except Sunday for dosing. After 90 days of successful treatment, they can begin applying for take-home doses. CMS doesn’t pressure clients to taper on any set timeline and works with each individual to create a customized plan, should they want to taper off of medication.
CMS also provides Vivitrol and Naltrexone treatment. Clients can request family counseling if their loved ones want to participate in therapy.
Community Medical Services operates four clinics throughout Arizona that provide MAT and therapy to opioid addicts. With over three decades of service, Community Medical Services is attuned to the needs of those struggling with opioid addiction in Arizona and is able to provide the emotional and medical support to help them begin a successful life in recovery.
