Approximately seven percent of the population in the United States suffers from alcoholism, or alcohol use disorder, which is a disease that affects how you use alcohol. At Mitchell Medical P.C., we have extensive experience helping our patients recognize and treat the problem before it causes irreversible damage to their physical health and to their lives. If you suspect that you or a loved one might suffer from alcoholism, call one of the offices or schedule an appointment online to get help.
In an ideal world, you would have the time to devote to an in-patient program in order to fully address your substance use disorder. That option is rarely available to those who have careers and families. It’s for this reason that we offer outpatient programs, allowing patients to get on with their lives while overcoming a substance use disorder. To learn more, call one of the offices or request a consultation using the online scheduling tool.
Alcohol and drug use disorders are diseases that affect both your mental and physical health, so treatment often tackles both of these areas for the best chances of success. To address the psychological side of substance use disorders, we turn to cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). This therapy has helped our patients to overcome the depression and anxiety issues that are often part and parcel of substance abuse. To learn more about CBT, call one of the offices or fill out the form online to schedule an appointment.
Substance abuse is considered a chronic disease, which means that relapse can often be part of the picture. While true numbers are hard to come by, most estimates put relapse rates between 40 and 60% when it comes to alcohol or drug addiction. At Mitchell Medical P.C., we understand the risks of relapse and design programs to help our patients avoid a return to substance abuse. To learn more about relapse prevention, call one of the offices or use the online scheduling tool to request an appointment.
If you’re in the grips of addiction, and you want to find release, detoxification is the first step — and it’s a scary one, both physically and mentally. To help ease the transition we, at Mitchell Medical P.C., offer at-home detox programs. With our help, patients can start on the road to recovery in the comfort of their own homes, taking the first steps toward an addiction-free life. To learn more, please call one of the offices or use the online scheduling tool to set up a consultation.
Any time you use a substance in a way that is dangerous, it can arguably be labeled as substance abuse. This type of substance use is a slippery slope to full-blown addiction and dependency, which is why early intervention is critical. At Mitchell Medical P.C., we are experts in the field of substance abuse and we help our patients regain control over their lives through individualized treatment programs. If substance abuse is threatening your life, call one of the offices or use the online scheduling tool to book an appointment.
