Low-barrier, evidence-based treatment

Why choose Ideal Option?

Ideal Option is a national leader in office-based medication-assisted treatment for addiction to opioids, alcohol, and other substances. 

No Overnight Stays

Ideal Option provides treatment in an outpatient setting that feels like a primary care clinic. Our convenient locations allow patients to maintain relationships with family and take advantage of employment opportunities.

No Wait Lists

Patients are scheduled for their first appointment within 24 hours or on the same day if possible. Walk-ins are welcome and urgent referrals from community partners such as jails and emergency departments are prioritized.

No Penalties

We understand that addiction is a chronic condition where slips and relapses are common. While return to use episodes will trigger a review of a patient’s treatment plan, patients are never penalized or expelled.

No Financial Barriers

We endeavor to help every patient who comes to us for treatment, regardless of insurance status. All forms of insurance including Medicaid and Medicare are accepted and financial assistance and payment plans are available.

Joint Commission Accredited

Ideal Option has been awarded The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for meeting the highest standards of care in its 80+ outpatient clinics and 5 in-house laboratories. To achieve the gold seal, Ideal Option had to pass rigorous requirements and demonstrate that we:

  • Educate patients about the risks and options for diagnosis and treatment.
  • Provide a safe environment for care.
  • Protect patient rights, including privacy rights.
  • Protect patients against infection.
  • Plan for emergency situations.

What Patients are Saying

Ideal Option has been working on the front lines of the opioid epidemic since our founders – two ER physicians – opened the first clinic in 2012. Today, Ideal Option employs more than 250 addiction medicine providers and staff in 80+ outpatient clinics across 9 states. We’re proud to have helped more than 82,000 patients on their journey to stable recovery from addiction.

They actually care about you

These people actually care. I do not dread going here as I have at every other place I have been to for my addiction. THANKS, IDEAL OPTION! Thank you for helping me get my life back. 

A new meaning to life

I couldn't be happier with Ideal Option! Ideal Option has given me a new meaning to life. I have dealt with addiction and depression for a long time now, and with the help of the medication and the therapy, I can honestly say I don't see myself going back. 

Truly a miracle

I came to Ideal Option broken down and suffering from an addiction to painkillers. I had lost my daughter to an overdose, and I was headed in the same direction if I didn't change my way of life quick. I tried my hardest to quit but the withdrawal from opioids was so strong. I called Ideal Option. They got me in to see someone the next day! 

I have zero desire to use drugs

I've been to several treatment centers and would always relapse within a couple weeks or even days after getting out. After getting out of my fourth treatment facility, craving to use, decided to call Ideal Option for medication-assisted treatment. It was the best decision I've ever made.
