Community Medical Services is an alcohol and drug addiction treatment facility that is located at 3825 North 24th Street in Phoenix, Arizona. Treating substance abuse involves multiple stages of treatment through a recovery program such as that offered by Community Medical Services. This can include group counseling, individual counseling, outpatient treatment, inpatient treatment, and medically assisted detox, among many others. Treatment programs are based on the individual themselves and are constructed to suit each patient individually. Just as every person is unique, so should treatment programs and that is exactly what patients will receive at Community Medical Services.

If addicts do not obtain the right type of support and guidance, they may find treatment to be very difficult as the thought of sobriety can seem so far-fetched. At Community Medical Services, professional counseling and guidance are provided to all patients aged 18+, giving them the strength needed in order to obtain a life that is free of drug and alcohol addiction. By altering the patient's outlook on life through addiction treatment, they will be able to stay positive throughout the duration of rehab.

The staff members at Community Medical Services have a mission and that is to give patients effective and quality addiction treatment so that long-lasting sobriety can be obtained. The path to a positive future starts on a positive foot and that begins at Community Medical Services. Confronting addiction is a difficult thing to do, but it is the most important step in the recovery process. Through professional counseling during the patient's time in treatment, patients will learn coping skills and trigger management which is imperative to the success of maintaining sobriety.

Maintaining sobriety on one's own is extremely difficult, especially when the addict has tried to go 'cold turkey' on their own. This is because it requires medically-assisted detox in order to properly and safely wean the body off of the substance of abuse. This way the body does not go through sudden withdrawal nor experience harsh side effects. Community Medical Services can provide patients with all of the necessary tools, treatments, and resources so that patients have every opportunity to succeed in recovery.

Getting treatment is the best option when seeking a life that is free of substance abuse. Get the help required now and start living the best life possible. Contact Community Medical Services by visiting now.

I've been here for 5 years the counselor's are caring as for the dosing nurses they like to argue & be combative with you and make you feel like you're less of a person and they're better than you so every week when I go to DOS I'm not happy to go because I know that the two nurses in the back or going to give me a hard time every time.even if I'm sweet to them and tell them good morning they won't say good morning back they just look like at you like you're an idiot, I don't know but they really need to get it together.

Hi my name is Wesley d Tharp and I have been a client of CMS Alpha since May of 2017 and I can honestly say that I owe so much gratitude to the staff at the alpha clinic. I came to them a 28 year old homeless meth and heroin addict that had been struggling with addiction since the age of 12 years old. I have been through numerous treatment programs and have also completed multiple terms in prison and have been in and out of jails and prisons since I was of age. my counselor Maria and peer support tech Rita have been much more then a support team for me. They believed in me when everyone else in my life had given up on me. With the MAT program and the one on one support the team at Alpha has provided me I have been able to start a new. I now have been clean and sober for some time now and am gainfully employed and working a honest recovery program. None of that would have been a possibility with CMS. Thank you so much and to anyone out there suffering with addiction please I implore you to set up and intake and let CMS be the rock you need in you life to lean on while you are getting you life back. ~CMS Client Since May 2017~ Wesley D Tharp

Today great but previously my Husband and I have had a lot of trouble with the staff not returning phone calls, certain staff tell you they are going to do something but it never gets done, and our prescriptions have been phoned in incorrectly and days late which left my Husband without his medication and became very sick. But the Counselors have been very helpful and really listen to you.

CMS has helped me regain control of my life and gotten me nearly completely in a new direction with a focus on things other than dope and criminal behaviors.

There is worst clinics out there. They have 2 windows. They are very strict though. Community medical services is the only clinic ive ever heard of that does "diversion" which is when they call you and if you don't come in right away and let them make sure that you have all your methadone (that's right I said methadone) and if you don't they knock you back down to where you have to go 6 days a week. No fun. And some of the counsolers are good others are ridiculous. Like I said there's worse clinics in phoenix, at least the people at the front are nice and most of the doctors...

It is like all things in life, You get out of it what you are willing to put in it. Dr. Rick is one of the most knowledgeable people and will share his knowledge with you. He has offered to help me with my medical Doctors at Mayo clinic and Honor Health. The nurses truly care and if given respect will try to do all they can to help. I have been lucky even though I have had turnover in my counselors that is more and industry thing but I have had some excellent ones starting with Judy to my current one Barbara. I have a great stable life and Family which was helped by my relationship with Alpha. Mike at the front desk is awesome!

I am a veteran of the Phoenix area Methadone clinics, thus the 3-β˜… rating. As far as methadone clinics go, that is an above average review. There are far worse clinics. Despite the high turnover in the counseling staff, the employees are some of the more professional in the addiction treatment field. That is both good & sometimes not so convenient. Example: One pre-holiday pre-weekend multi-dose takehome day, I arrived right at closing time (11:30) am, just to have the door slammed in my face and I locked. No amount of pounding, pleading etc could open that door. So I was faced w/a five day holiday period w/no medication resulting in one sick patient from methadone withdrawals. To be fair, if you can survive the arbitrary rules enforcement, & if you have been lucky enough to be assigned to a decent enough counselor, who hangs around long enough to get to know you, & IF you can stay clean in body & mouth (wait in line politely) it's not a bad clinic.

Great program! Like any other M.M.T./M.D.T it will only work if you are done ABUSING NARCOTICS! If your not don't waste your time, or there's! However if you are ready C.M.S. ALPHA is a fine place to start your journey to sanity, GOOD LUCK!!!
