Team-based integrated approach
Addiction and Mental Health
Many patients have co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders. They benefit from psychiatric evaluation and then a comprehensive plan directed towards both the psychiatric diagnoses and substance use disorders. Usually this involves medications for the psychiatric illness, psychotherapy/counseling, either individually or also with a family or couple, and sometimes community based treatment partnering if a patient is struggling to the degree that managing to take care of themselves enough to get to appointments and stay on top of medications or manage to avoid relapse are hard between sessions. Usually either your current therapist or one of the therapists in the practice will work with Dr. Oddy as a larger treatment team to help you be successful.
