Many clients present with psychological and psychiatric issues that indicate treatment with therapeutic psychotropic agents, in an effort to aid in returning the brain to a better regulated state. Medication can significantly enhance emotional and cognitive functioning. When patients experience even partial symptom remission, as a result of psychopharmacological intervention, the effectiveness of therapy may be enhanced; often, this results in a significant benefit in all areas of emotional and cognitive functioning. Combining traditional psychotherapy with adjunctive pharmacotherapy represents an optimal approach to treatment in general. Dr. Diane E. King is our prescribing doctor.
Now accepting patients in need of treatment for opioid addiction and chemical dependency.
Suboxone is the medication prescribed, and patients are also able to receive supportive psychotherapy in the same office. Medication maintenance addresses the issue of chemical dependency, whereas psychotherapy addresses psychological issues surrounding addictive behaviors.
In general, clients presenting with chemical dependency issues also show signs and report symptoms of co-occurring mental health conditions. Our treatment model addresses both chemical dependency and mental health conditions simultaneously, as one contributes to the other. Our goal is to provide this treatment in a confidential environment that affords clients the highest level of care and appropriate monitoring during treatment. Drug screening is also available on site.
