Telepsychiatry appointments offer an additional layer of convenience for those seeking remote consultations.

Understanding the Cycle of Addiction

SUD disrupts both thoughts and behaviors, making it incredibly difficult to stop using the substance, even when aware of its harmful consequences. It exploits vulnerabilities in the brain's reward system, leading to compulsive use despite negative consequences. Underlying mental health issues like anxiety, depresson, bipolar or trauma/PTSD can trigger initial use of alcohol or drugs as a coping mechanism. The addictive substance then disrupts normal reward pathways, creating intense cravings and distorted thinking patterns that perpetuate the cycle. This can lead to a sense of loss of control, where individuals feel powerless to resist use despite wanting to quit. Effective treatment addresses both the physical dependence and these psychological factors for lasting recovery.

Personalized Care Through Thorough Evaluation

Our team of qualified professionals conducts comprehensive psychiatric evaluations to diagnose not only SUD but also any co-morbid mental health issues. Following this thorough assessment, we are tackling the root cause of the addiction.
