ARS Treatment Services

ARS has developed a treatment program to meet the needs of people suffering from addiction to any type of opiate. As mentioned, this treatment program consists of two main pieces: treatment medication and counseling. These pieces are combined to provide you with the most effective treatment for your addiction.

The medication you receive will not only provide your brain time to heal, but also manage symptoms of your addiction to allow you to focus on recovery activities. The counseling support you receive is what is going to set you up for success in long-term recovery when you’re ready to stop taking the medication. Our “Path to Recovery” program contains standard worksheets and session topics you will work through with your counselor and individualize to your recovery. There are three (3) distinct phases to the course which you’ll go through with your counselor that coincide with your time and progress in treatment.



This phase includes your intake day—when you will receive your Path to Recovery Handbook and be introduced to your treatment team. Generally, this phase would last through your first month of treatment.  You will meet with your counselor weekly for follow-up sessions, education about treatment, and drug screening.


Early Recovery

Once your medication dose starts to stabilize and you have an understanding of treatment, you and your counselor will start working on understanding your addiction.  You will start developing treatment plans, discussing your triggers, and creating a road map of your path to recovery.


Relapse Prevention & Stabilization

After roughly 12 months in treatment, you and your center’s physician will begin to consider tapering off your treatment medication and working on an after care plan.
