ABOUT QUALITY ADDICTION MANAGEMENT (QAM) – WAUKESHA

Quality Addiction Management (QAM) of Waukesha, Wis., located 19 miles west of Milwaukee, is one of seven physician-directed methadone maintenance facilities operated by the organization. The program also offers counseling services. According to their website, QAM’s facilities are accredited and regulated by state and federal agencies.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

To determine an appropriate methadone dosage, clients first participate in a substance abuse history and psychosocial assessment, as well as a physical examination. Once a dosage is prescribed and dispensed, the methadone regimen helps alleviate physical opiate cravings. To hold clients accountable, clients are subject to drug screenings throughout the program.

To ensure clients do not relapse or encounter severe withdrawals, clients take a daily methadone dose, which is highly regulated and administered orally on-site. Through clinician-led group and individual counseling sessions, clients may learn coping techniques, methods for trigger avoidance, and how to regulate emotions.

While there is no specific timeline for the program, methadone maintenance is generally a long-term commitment, lasting from a few months to years. Throughout treatment, QAM continually reviews and modifies treatment plans, and over time, QAM may reduce dosage levels to help taper client off from the methadone regimen.

Facilities are led by board-certified physicians in addiction medicine and supported by clinicians.
