Treatment

Call the ADM Addiction Helpline to connect with treatment: 330-940-1133

The ADM Addiction Helpline is a service to assist individuals who are looking to recover from an addiction to alcohol, drugs or gambling. Callers will be asked a few questions: treatment preferences, insurance coverage, location, etc., to assist the Helpline staff in determining which local treatment providers could meet their needs.

The caller will be provided with information about treatment options available to them based on their individual circumstances. Once the caller knows their options, they can choose the local agency where they would like to begin treatment. The Addiction Helpline staff will then connect the caller to the selected treatment agency to make a warm hand-off and to schedule the initial appointment.

What is Medication Assisted Treatment?

Medication assisted treatment (MAT) uses medications such as Naltrexone (Vivitrol), Methadone, and Buprenorphine (Suboxone) in combination with counseling to treat opiate addictions. These medicines help to curb the side effects of withdrawal so that the patient can engage in behavioral therapy and begin the recovery process. The medication eases the physical discomfort and may also decrease the cravings to use opiates. Used in conjunction with a prescribed level of therapy, individuals develop the tools to better equip them to face the challenges of recovery and enjoy the benefits and rewards of sobriety. Medication assisted treatment is evidence-based and supported by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Call 330-940-1133 to get started.
