How Can A Drug Dependence Physician Help?
Our addiction physician is significantly beneficial to those who are addicted to painkillers, alcohol, heroin, or other drugs. At IMI-AM, we have one of the best addiction teams. Our doctors work closely with the clients in an attempt to stop them from abusing substances. They then help them to maintain a healthier lifestyle and mindset.
One of the main benefits of having addiction psychiatry is that it’s confidential and unbiased. Our physicians don’t know anything about their patient except for what they’ve shared. By having a balanced but helpful input to all of their advice, it encourages the patient to release any emotions or issues that have been contributed to their addiction. Our client can express anything that they need to with their treatment team and work on overcoming negative matters so that nothing holds them back from a full recovery.
It’s incredibly important for the family and friends of our patient to help in any way that they can.
The more support and encouragement that our client gets, the more likely they are to recover from their addiction and not have a relapse. Assuming an attitude of compassion and understanding goes a long way. During addiction treatment, they can still get triggered, and unsupportive family members can cause them to spiral. Positive energy is the best solution. When a client undergoes substance abuse treatment, they always get treated with the utmost respect.
