ABOUT AMC OF COLUMBUS
Serving clients in the Columbus, Ohio area, AMC (short for Addiction Medicine Care) offers outpatient treatment to adults struggling with substance use disorder. The clinic specializes in providing medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to clients battling opioid addiction. In 2017, 9,442 individuals were receiving MAT in Ohio, making up about 2.3 percent of individuals receiving MAT at a national level.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Treatment at AMC of Columbus is provided on an appointment basis only, Mondays through Saturdays. The treatment process begins with an assessment by a physician to identify any medical or behavioral concerns. The physician then helps the client create a comprehensive treatment plan.
MAT utilizes Suboxone, a medication option offered by 38 percent of substance abuse treatment facilities in Ohio. Once the correct dosage is established, clients must schedule treatments at least every 28 days to remain active in the program.
Clients must also participate in counseling while in the program. AMC offers individual, group, and family therapy, as well as psychoeducation and specialized programs for codependency. Counseling services focus identifying and addressing problem behaviors, as well as educating clients about addiction.
Clients will taper the use of Suboxone over time. However, clients are encouraged to continue counseling and other services after Suboxone use has ended.
AMC employs a team of physicians to manage Suboxone treatments, as well as licensed independent chemical dependency counselors.
