Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Christensen "Addiction is an often fatal disease that can involve dependence on opioids (prescription pain pills), alcohol, cocaine, sedatives, and more. Treatment may involve medication assisted therapy (buprenorphine, naltrexone), 12 step recovery (AA/NA) or residential treatment. If medications are used, it is important not to rely on them alone! We can perform an addiction assessment, make recommendations for treatment, and coordinate your care."
