Addiction Treatment Doctor Offering Opiate Addiction Treatment in Florida

If you have an opiate addiction, getting the help you need to overcome the problem can be a challenge. Many people feel unable to commit to a residential opiate withdrawal treatment, as they have work to go to or caring responsibilities. Others feel that an opiate replacement prescription just isn’t going to be enough to make their morphine detox or Suboxone withdrawal a success. In these circumstances and more, our heroin withdrawal treatment can work exceptionally well.

Outpatient Suboxone Treatment Which Combines Mental and Physical Assistance

Our doctor for addiction treatment believes that medication to lessen the side effects of opiate addiction should be combined with an appropriate talking therapy in order to achieve the best results. Often, addiction and mental health problems are interlinked; our addiction psychiatrist aims to offer a holistic treatment that helps every patient towards improved mental and physical well-being.
