Our addiction medicine services are tailored towards patients with substance disorders, such as alcohol use disorder, opioid use disorder, and tobacco use disorder. We also provide counseling to those patients who have been harmed by policies and practices that defame them.

Types of Addiction Treated

We treat a wide variety of addiction substance use disorders (SUD).

  • Alcohol Use Disorder
    We first diagnose the problem, evaluate the severity, and then offer treatment. In alcohol use disorder, it's critical to determine whether the patient first requires acute medical stabilization and withdrawal services known as ‘detox’. In this case, we assist in arranging those services to be provided in an inpatient, monitored setting, if necessary.
  • Opioid Use Disorder
    Similarly, we also diagnose the problem, evaluate the severity, and offer treatment in case of Opioid use disorder. Several life-saving and useful medications are available to treat opioid use disorder, withdrawal, reduce relapse, and reduce the risk of death. Methadone, Naltrexone, and Buprenorphine are the medication for opioid use disorder.
  • Tobacco Use Disorder
    The treatment for tobacco use disorder contains cognitive behavioral therapy, nicotine replacement therapy, and counseling. Our team will help you determine the best treatment options available.
