Founded in 1983 in Phoenix, Arizona, Community Medical Services (CMS) is a CARF–accredited network of clinics that focuses on providing treatment for substance abuse disorder. CMS offers outpatient MAT, private individual, and group sessions, as well as Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP).
Besides Phoenix, CMS operates additional facilities in Mesa, Tuscon, and Glendale. While Tuscon and Phoenix clinics offer treatment with methadone and Suboxone, the Glendale and Mesa clinics use methadone only for treating substance abuse problems. CMS began its Montana operations in 2009. It also started additional clinics in Alaska and North Dakota in 2016.
With the inclusion of MARS Clinics and Premier Care, CMS has a total of 28 clinics that are spread across nine states.
Prospective clients have to undergo a phone assessment. If they are deemed suitable for admission, an in-person evaluation is scheduled by CMS within seven days. Once the assessment is completed, clients are provided a treatment plan which utilizes either Suboxone or methadone.
Along with the medications, recommendations are made for attending individual or group therapy sessions in the clinic. Clients have to participate in the individual or group therapy sessions at least once a month, but they are encouraged to come at least weekly.
CMS follows a Moral Recognition Therapy model for its treatment. Group sessions incorporate Motivational Interviewing (MI) and CBT.
Methadone clients are required to visit the clinic for dosing all days of the week except Sundays. Once they complete 90 days of treatment, they can apply to get the take-home doses. There is no tapering pressure on the CMS clients. Should the client decide to taper off, the facility works with each client to create an individual plan.
The treatment team treats co-occurring disorders on a need basis, but a majority of the clients who require dual diagnosis support get referred to the nearby mental health clinics. The clients might also be referred to SMART Recovery or 12-step by the treatment team if a client wants to expand the support network.
The staff at CMS generally consists of medical doctors and therapists. LPCs, LCSWs, and LISACs run the treatment groups.
Besides methadone and Suboxone, CMS also offers treatment with Naltrexone and Vivitrol. If the loved ones desire, clients can also request family counseling.
