There's something unique about Wisconsin's newest opioid treatment program. Community Medical Services in West Allis accepts patients 24/7. The first-of-its-kind clinic in the Midwest is located near the intersection of Highway 100 and National Avenue. It opened April 17.
There are 21 opioid treatment programs in Wisconsin. These programs provide medication-assisted treatment using buprenorphine products, methadone, or naltrexone in conjunction with counseling and other supports. This approach is the most effective way to treat an addiction to opioids.
Most opioid treatment programs open early in the morning and close by early afternoon Monday through Saturday A 24/7 opioid treatment program allows people to access treatment at any given time when they are ready, not when practitioners may be available.
People can also call 211 to access the Wisconsin Addiction Recovery Helpline. This helpline connects people to local treatment services.
