In brief: Abuse treatment
The treatment plan for someone potentially suffering from addiction needs to start with a high quality assessment best done by a physician certified in addiction medicine by the american society of addiction medicine (http://www.
Asam.Org/). A comprehensive assessment will allow the development of a high quality treatment plan. Addiction is a progressive and fatal disease if left untreated.
