Initial Medical Assessment
Initial Medical Assessment for Addiction Treatment
People struggling with addictions often feel lost and hopeless and aren’t sure where to turn for help. If this is the case with you or your loved one, we are a great place to start.
We will perform a comprehensive medical assessment and help you make decisions about resources that will be most helpful. We believe that addiction care should be individualized and build upon a person’s strengths. We also believe that addiction care, whenever possible, should not disrupt people’s lives. Instead, it should enhance a person’s strengths and elements of life that are working.
We are familiar with many different types of resources that can be helpful to people who are trying to find recovery from addiction. Our assessment will include making recommendations for: medications, community recovery supports, sober living environments and treatment centers.
Our medical staff is experienced in the treatment of addictions of all sorts. We believe in building relationships with our patients over time. Together we can develop a treatment plan that meets your needs and builds on your strengths. We have relationships with other providers of addiction treatment services in our community that we feel are excellent, reputable and ethical. If additional services are required, we can help you find a provider that is right for you.
Sometimes the initial goal in recovery is a safe and compassionate medical detox. As part of our assessment we can determine the most appropriate setting for that to take place. If it can be achieved safely, comfortably, and effectively; we will make every effort to help you detox in an outpatient setting. Sometimes it is necessary to detox patients in an inpatient facility. If this is the case, we work with a number of local facilities who can help us achieve this. Most residential rehab facilities require an initial medical assessment before entering treatment. We can provide a comprehensive assessment that will enhance your ability to make the most of your treatment experience. As part of this, we will make our assessment available to the treatment facility so that your care can be coordinated.
