Medication Assisted Treatment of Addiction
We are living in a time where addiction is more destructive than ever. It has touched the lives of almost everyone in our society either personally or through a friend or family member. Addiction is often viewed as a personal failing, not a disease. People struggling with addiction are often blamed for their disease. At Lotus Direct Care we approach addiction, not as a personal failing, but as a complex neurobiological condition with deep roots often related to people's past experiences. We provide addiction treatment with compassion and without judgement.

Medications for Opioid Dependence
Access to these lifesaving medications has been limited during the pandemic. Online services can help to get medications to people in need. We are still experiencing an opioid epidemic and these services are more needed now than ever.
We now provide Telehealth services for addiction. Patients can be seen from the comfort of their home. Typically, patients are seen weekly for four weeks and if doing well, visits are spaced out to once every two weeks, then once a month.
We send drug tests to patient's homes, reducing the need to be seen in person
Patients can attend either NA, Smart Recovery or other online or in person support groups or can be referred for counseling locally or with an online provider based on their preference and what is working for them.
Accepting patients from all over Wisconsin.
We allow people to guide their treatment with our expert advice. We do not force people to stop
medication, but we do help them to stop taking it when it is desired and appropriate.
