Medication Assisted Treatment at ETS

ETS uses medication to help stabilize the brain functioning of people with opioid use disorders. This treatment recognizes the effects of prolonged opioid use on the brainĀ and helps to manage this medical condition by stabilizing brain chemistry. Once a patient is medically stabilized, they are better equipped to tackle the difficult emotional and environmental circumstances surrounding recovery. We combine medication with important rehabilitative services in our federally accredited opioid treatment program.

Scientific research shows that the following services provide important support that patients need to boost the likelihood of recovery:

  • Assessment and treatment planning

  • Methadone or buprenorphine-based medication

Opioid Treatment Program

Hope starts here. Daily treatment services are available at our clinics in Seattle, Hoquiam, Renton, and Olympia. After beginning treatment, patients are required to come to the clinic six days per week to take their medication. Patients will also be provided with important support services including counseling and classes that will help along the way.



Our newest program, Flex Care, allows patients to receive treatment from medical prescribers who work closely with a nurse care manager. This treatment starts with weekly visits with the medical team, a limited prescription of the buprenorphine and ETS counseling and other support services.
