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.
