Treatment of Addiction and Opiate Detoxification
Many patients suffering from a mental illness also have coexisting problems with alcohol and/or drugs. Successful treatment for illnesses such as depression, anxiety, and psychosis depend on dual treatment for a contributing substance use disorder. Dr. Still is skilled in the treatment of various substance use disorders, whether or not there is a comorbid psychiatric diagnosis. In addition, he specializes in the multidisciplinary treatment of behavioral addictions, like pathological gambling.
Dr. Still is licensed by the Drug Enforcement Administration to prescribe buprenorphine products, including Suboxone, for outpatient opiate detoxification. This is a treatment option that is reserved for highly motivated and carefully screened patients as part of a comprehensive addiction treatment program. Please call the office to speak with Dr. Still if you feel you are a candidate for this treatment.
