Specializes in Psychiatry

Treatment is: targeted not only to the substance, but also for the patient’s lifestyle. Treatment for say, a married patient with opiate use disorder who works several jobs will be different from a patient who suffers with alcohol use disorder who has a different lifestyle for example. There are various pharmacological, individual, and group interventions available for substance use disorders.
