We know that some topics such as substance abuse, addiction, and dependence are hard to talk about and seeking help can be difficult and/or nerve-racking. At Nu Life Medical, we create a safe environment for patients to speak openly and freely about their medical concerns without judgement. Our practice offers addiction and dependence programs in areas such as :
Identifying that you are struggling with substance abuse, addiction, or dependence is the first step to recovery.
Dr. Eftekhari is a great-listener and attentive to details. He wants to hear your life story to better understand who you are and where you want to go . He will start by identifying specific triggers that cause your urges and use. He will then analyze your daily habits to help find the best, catered treatment plan for you and your lifestyle. He also will help you cut your cravings to eliminate quick fixes or relapses.
Dr. Eftekhari believes in a wean down approach in which patients, depending on the substance, are slowly tapered off the substance or given non-addictive alternatives to avoid risk of withdrawal and overdose. He will help you find healthy habits to fill the cravings. Although not required, we also suggest patients seek support groups or visit a therapist to improve mental endurance through the process.
Treatment is a marathon, not a sprint. It takes time and strides to get back on the right track and we are here to help you through it! Nu Life Medical strives to help patients get their lives back on track and live the healthiest life possible. Ask about our addiction and dependence programs today!
