Addiction Medical Services
Mitchell Medical, PC has an unparalleled track record of helping its patients get sober and stay sober. Regardless of the addiction or its source – whether it be alcoholism, opioid addiction, benzo or sedative dependence, or any other substance abuse issue – MMPC develops a uniquely tailored yet consistently effective approach of medically assisted treatment (MAT) that’s specific to each individual patient. It’s judgement free, and solely focused on getting patients back to a sustainable and sober life.
Unlike rehabs, which mainly focus on inpatient detox services, Mitchell Medical delivers a unique outpatient detox process that helps patients to get clean in the comfort of their own homes. And as one of the few certified practitioners of the Sinclair Method, Dr. Mitchell meets with patients regularly after detox to guide them through a life of long term sobriety and relapse prevention. Addiction is a chronic disease, and should be closely monitored even after a patient completes their detoxification process or returns from rehab. Each patient is given the personal cell phone number of Dr. Mitchell as well as his wife and practice manager, Lynne, who are both fully committed to their patients’ well-being day and night.
Experienced doctors in addiction medicine
Dr. Michael Mitchell’s work in substance use disorders is more than a professional calling. After his brother died of a heroin overdose, Dr. Mitchell dedicated his career to preventing this same tragedy from touching the lives of others, which is why he sought board certification in addiction medicine in 2014.
Since his brother’s tragedy, Dr. Mitchell has helped his patients at Mitchell Medical PC, which has two locations in New York City and Mahopac, New York, get on the road to recovery through tailored programs that use the latest evidence-based practices and medications.
Dr. Mitchell started his medical career with a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Jacksonville University in Florida in 1976. From there, he earned his medical degree at the University of Dominica in Dominica in 1980, and then completed further training in surgery at North General Hospital and a residency in pediatrics at Beth Israel Medical Center.
After years of general practice, largely in pediatric health, Dr. Mitchell opened Mitchell Medical PC in 2012.
Additionally, Dr. Mitchell is a Fellow of The American Society of Addiction Medicine, ASAM.
As a witness to the devastating impact that addiction and substance use disorders can have, Dr. Mitchell offers his patients and their families new hope and works tirelessly with his clients to restore their lives.
