Kingman PD pairs medicine, technology to help save opioid overdose victims

Shout out to City Of Kingman Police for breaking down stigma and saving lives!

"It's very sad. It's changed how we approach things," Cooper continued. "It's non-judgmental. It doesn't come with a stigma as much anymore. We use terms like 'opioid use disorder' because that's truly what it is -- it's substance use disorder."

County sees emerging crisis with addictive painkiller

“A lot of people will look at someone struggling with an opioid or drug abuse problem and think ‘that person just doesn’t have the willpower to say no,’ and unfortunately that shows a very deep misunderstanding of the concept of addiction,” Sherrick said. “Those struggling with addiction need a lot of support."

County sees emerging crisis with addictive painkiller Flathead County experts say illegally manufactured fentanyl is now prevalent throughout the greater valley, and that issues associated with the highly addictive painkiller may prove to be the most challenging leg yet in Montana’s battle against the ongoing opioid epidemic.

Opioid Treatment Programs Continue to Face Challenges In Opening Centers 06/30/2021

Opioid Treatment Programs Continue to Face Challenges In Opening Centers

Thanks to Pew Research Center for the great article highlighting the challenges OTPs face when trying to increase access to care.

"Our mission is not just to treat opioid addiction, but also to change how people look at addiction and treatment. If a treatment program can work with a city rather than getting into a legal battle, that’s not just allowing the program to open up a clinic: It’s actually changing the hearts and the minds of all those people in the community. And that’s a win-win situation."

Opioid Treatment Programs Continue to Face Challenges In Opening Centers Nick Stavros serves as the chief executive officer of Community Medical Services, an Arizona-based for-profit agency with more than 40 treatment programs in nine states. Stavros is also the president of the Arizona Opioid Treatment Coalition and the Arizona representative to the American Association...

#WhyWorkHereWednesday

Connecting Recovery - Healing Communities

Community Medical Services is a CARF–accredited substance use disorder treatment program providing services in the form of outpatient medication-assisted treatment and private one–on–one and group counseling, and Intensive Out-Patient therapy (IOP) to those seeking help with their substance use disorders.

At Community Medical Services, we do not believe that medication in and of itself is always the final solution. Medication oftentimes stabilizes one's brain chemistry so that psycho-social root causes of dependency can be addressed. At CMS, we provide counseling services to our patients to give them the opportunity to talk and share their individual thoughts associated with their substance use dependency and related struggles. Family and group counseling services are offered and provided at individual patient requests or as a result of a recommendation from the treatment team. Educational needs are also assessed and incorporated into provided services.

Behavior management within the context of the therapeutic setting emphasizes life skills training relating to boundaries, responsibility, and consequences. Clinicians assist patients in recognizing old patterns and behaviors and learning new life skills. This is utilized through patient-centered counseling, cognitive-behavioral interventions, and behavior management techniques (initiatives and rewards).
