Opioid Maintenance Treatment


Pilsen Wellness Center’s Opioid Maintenance Therapy (OMT) Programs offer culturally sensitive rehabilitation services to persons dependent on opiates. Each program unit employs specific treatmenet approaches dependent on the population served. All OMT porgrams are staffed by certified Methadone treatment counselors. Methadone is dispensed by LPNs and supervised by RNs under DEA and SAMHSA guidelines.

Services include individualized assessment and treatment planning; acute psychiatric intervention in crises; medication training; medication monitoring and evaluation by a Board Certified Physician; individual and group counseling; support groups; case management and referrals; support in obtaining public entitlement benefits; as well as advocacy and aftercare for persons successfully detoxed from outpatient methadone treatment.

Pilsen Wellness Center’s opioid maintenance programs address the needs of individuals within the general population who are experiencing heroin addiction problems. The OMT-Private Program offers Methadone treatment for participants who pay with private funds. The OMT-DASA Program provides services to individuals requiring IDHS/DASA subsidized treatment. The Methadone Treatment Program in Stone Park, Illinois offers similar treatment services to both subsidized-payment clients and private pay program participants.
