Multidisciplinary Approach to Addiction Treatment
At Lakeview Health Systems, we approach addiction treatment from a holistic perspective. Holistic medicine pays special attention to the interconnectedness of the mind and the body, treating the whole person. It addresses all aspects of a person’s health including medical, psychological and spiritual needs. To break the addiction cycle, all facets of a person’s life must be closely examined and subsequently addressed. The best way to go about this is by using a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach which includes a trained team of doctors, nurses, clinicians and therapists that are licensed and experienced in treating alcohol and drug abuse.
Benefits of a Multidisciplinary Treatment Approach
Alcohol and drug abuse develop as a dysfunctional coping skill and invade every aspect of a person’s life. In an inpatient addiction treatment program, the addict will learn new coping skills to address underlying issues and eliminate substance abuse. A multidisciplinary treatment team of doctors, psychiatrists, nurses, therapists and clinicians will assist the addict in this process while the addict learns to take care of intellectual, physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.
Doctors, psychiatrists, nurses, therapists, and clinicians must undergo cross-training to be part of a multidisciplinary treatment team. Their backgrounds include education and experience in both the medical and clinical fields. Lakeview Health Systems is a longtime proponent of the multidisciplinary approach, now considered by the U.S. government to be a best practice in the substance abuse treatment industry.
