Twelve-Step programs are sometimes critical of medication-assisted treatment, discouraging members by saying they are not really sober if they are taking prescription drugs for their dependency. Despite the evidence that medication-assisted treatment help patients with chemical dependency, using drugs carries a stigma. Many Professional scoff at medication-assisted treatment, dismissing it as a temporary fix or taking the easy way out. This is so disheartening to those that it has helped stay sober. Rather, the physician will coordinate the use of medication with other facets of care to ensure that it is used effectively.

In treating you as a whole person, rather than a list of symptoms, I can help you gain greater insight into your own internal experience - your needs, emotions, and authentic values. Through our work together, I can help you identify obstacles and conflicts that are preventing you from leading a fuller and more authentic life.
