Within my practice, I promote and facilitate my personal beliefs that patients are adequately intelligent to understand their condition and that patients deserve to be sincerely included in identifying reasons for and treatments for their disorders. People are intuitive by nature and are capable of deciding who they trust to treat them when they are ill.

Narcotic addiction is a long-lasting (chronic) disease that can cause major health, social, and economic problems. Opioids are a class of drugs that act in the nervous system to produce feelings of pleasure and pain relief. Some opioids are legally prescribed by healthcare providers to manage severe and chronic pain.
OxyContin: A prescription painkiller that has become a popular and dangerous recreational drug, also called “Oxy” in the street. OxyContin is a time-release morphine-like narcotic intended to relieve chronic pain of moderate to severe proportions. … OxyContin has been much abused. It is highly addicting.
Cocaine causes biochemical lesions in the brain of rats. These lesions cause reduction in dopamine and DOPAC levels. These findings may explain why cocaine is so addictive that it requires repeated use to maintain the levels of dopamine in the brain. Dopamine is a necessary chemical needed in many functions of the brain especially in regards to mood and sense of pleasure.
Methamphetamine is a highly addictive substance; it has rapid access to the brain which develops a high tolerance requiring more use to achieve the so called “high” effects. It is for this reason that meth addicts disappear for days, going into binges of a continuous high. During the binge cycle, which lasts 3-15 days, the abuser becomes both mentally and physically hyperactive. This cycle is the reason that meth becomes difficult to treat.
Patients, who self-medicate with alcohol, often have undiagnosed, secondary disorders that are relevant to their addiction including Social Phobia, Anxiety disorder and Depression, Bipolar II. These disorders are related to perhaps the most significant reason for alcohol relapse; the inability to cope with anxiety.
