Chemical dependency is the continued use of a substance that had an initial benefit for the patient far past its intended dosage or requirement. This leads to dangerous increases in the substance due to tolerance, severe withdrawal symptoms, inordinate amounts of time procuring or recovering from the drug and, unfortunately, negative impacts on your relationship and everyday living.

A few of these conditions include oppositional defiant disorder, conduct disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
A psychological profile is often an overlooked but necessary step in determining the eligibility and preparation of a candidate for a Lap-Band procedure. Treating the patient’s psychological issues with food has been proven to provide the best post-operative results.

Excessive anxiety can be difficult to control and may negatively affect your day-to-day living. Every patient’s situation is different, so our goal is to determine which type of anxiety from which you suffer and devise a treatment plan that fits the scope and severity of your condition.
If you suffer from opioid addiction, we can properly diagnose your condition and recommend an effective medication-assisted treatment that includes Suboxone. Suboxone has been shown to more effectively suppress withdrawal symptoms and cravings for opioids without causing the euphoria found from using other opioid addiction medications.
