Who We Are
Community Medical Services is an opioid treatment program (OTP) different from all the rest, with a compassionate approach to care that goes beyond medication. Since 1983, Community Medical Services (CMS) has been at the forefront of evidence-based practices, providing outpatient medication for opioid use disorder (MOUD) along with counseling and peer support services. Our roots in Phoenix, Arizona, have blossomed into more than 70 clinics across multiple states, including the country’s first 24-hour Opioid Treatment on Demand (OTOD) center in Phoenix.
CMS thrives on tackling the opioid epidemic head-on, especially where treatment resources are scarce. Our unwavering mission is to collaborate closely with the communities we serve, providing essential education about effective opioid use disorder (OUD) treatment. Our commitment extends beyond treatment – we’re dedicated to erasing the impact of substance use, guiding patients through seamless care, free from the discrimination and stigma often associated with opioid use disorder and medication assisted treatment.
