WHAT WE DO
For most patient’s addiction treatment requires chronic disease management that includes a combination of pharmacological and psychotherapeutic interventions, administered in a variety of treatment settings and over a time frame sufficient to monitor for relapse, stability and remission. The determination of which therapies will yield the best outcomes for persons with addiction should be made by knowledgeable and skilled Addiction Medicine Physicians, in whom patients have placed their trust and well-being.
Medication assisted therapy provides the most immediate and effective way to interrupt the cycle of ongoing illicit drug use in active addiction. Patients struggling with addiction need specialized physicians who can address the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and social aspects of substance dependency and recovery. There is a not a one size fits all approach to treating addiction and personalized treatment planning is critical to connect patients with the right recovery resources and support to help them achieve and maintain long-term recovery.
