Challenges And Opportunities
With America’s opioid addiction epidemic reaching new heights, establishing an effective treatment plan for opioid dependent patients and running an efficient opioid maintenance treatment program (OMT) is critical. The current growth of OMT programs and their movement into the mainstream of addiction treatment brings with it an increased focus on real outcome measures, patient satisfaction, and patient retention.
Consulting OMT uses the proven success of managing diverse addiction treatment facilities, with leading industry practices and the expertise of a certified addiction medicine specialist, to help programs across the country better manage business and operational standards for increased success and profitability.

Comprehensive Treatment Model
Understanding and being able to implement a long-term chronic disease management treatment model.
Improved Patient Management
