Our office provides physician-directed, individual, outpatient, private office-based drug addiction treatment. Prior to the first appointment, patients are screened through a telephone interview to confirm that our medical practice is appropriate to meet their addiction treatment needs. The first appointment includes drug testing, history and physical examination, and a detailed discussion with the physician concerning the medical nature and treatment of the patient’s chronic brain disease of drug addiction. At the one week office follow-up, the patient’s condition is re-evaluated to confirm addiction stabilization. Follow up appointments are scheduled monthly thereafter.
