Medical & Psychiatric Care

Medical and psychiatric care is necessary for those who struggle with a substance use disorder. Drug and alcohol addiction can profoundly affect an individual’s whole body, not just the brain. The body’s organs and functions need to recover, too. It’s not uncommon for people in active addiction to also struggle with mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, trauma, or post-traumatic stress disorder. To this end, medical and psychiatric care are often necessary in order for people to function and think more clearly as they enter the recovery process.
