Chemical Dependency Treatment

Substance dependence has become one of the most prevalent problems facing people today.  Your problem might have started with a prescription or with recreational drugs, either way, becoming addicted was not your intention.  You were no doubt upset when you discovered that you could not quit when you wanted to.  You found out that addiction was not a choice.

At Northshore Family Practice drug dependency is treated as a medical problem.  We offer treatment with buprenorphine (Suboxone) and long-acting naltrexone (Vivitrol).  Dr. Barbara Mendrey, MD heads the dependency treatment program at Northshore Family Practice.

Patients also work with Dr. Blake Myers, ND on addressing underlying causes of use and triggers for relapse, such as anxiety, depression, pain and insomnia, as well as decreasing post acute withdrawal (PAWS) symptoms.
