Addiction Medicine Program (AMP)

Effective, adaptable addiction care

Homewood’s Addiction Medicine Program (AMP) is a specialty inpatient program focused on treating individuals struggling with substance use and concurrent disorders. Treatment is overseen by psychiatrists and addiction physicians as well as an interdisciplinary team of psychologists, psychotherapists, nursing professionals, occupational therapists, and recreation therapists.

AMP also offers specialized streams for healthcare professionals and for first responders, military, and veterans.  The Homewood AMP approach also integrates life-stage issues for young adults and older adults.

Since Homewood opened its doors in 1883, recovery from substance use disorders has been at the core of our mission. The programs we offer for individuals struggling with addiction and their family members are part of a fully integrated system of care offering flexible programming tailored to individual needs.
