We're with You Every Step of the Way with Our Recovery Support

If you’ve been struggling with a substance use disorder, you long for the day when you can take back control of your life and your happiness. While everyone’s road to recovery is unique, the one tool that everyone can use is ongoing expert support, because recovery doesn’t happen overnight.

At Northshore Family Practice, our team of addiction specialists provides the services and recovery support you need through every stage of your journey, from the initial detox to building a strong foundation in sobriety.

Whether you’re coming off a relapse or this is your first attempt at sobriety, we’re invested in your recovery. Here’s a look at the many ways we can support your efforts.

Detox is just the first step

There are many hurdles to getting sober.  It starts with detoxing. Thanks to our outpatient accelerated detox program or an  inpatient detox program that we can recommend, we can help you get through this period with relative ease.

Once we know you’re free and clear of the physical dependence you may have developed during your substance use, the real work begins in earnest — maintaining your sobriety by preventing relapse.

After detox

After we’ve tackled the physical dependency, our next step is to address your addiction. When you develop a substance use disorder, your brain rewires itself and creates new neural pathways that support using. For example, those uncontrollable urges that led you to drink or use every time you vowed you would quit are a prime example of this new wiring in your brain — and they can be quite powerful.

The goal of our recovery support services is to turn these uncontrollable urges into ones that you can control, and to eventually eliminate them altogether.

As we mentioned, no two recoveries are alike, so our first step is to fully evaluate your needs and provide you with the resources you need to move forward. 

These resources may include:

The work we do to break the bonds of your addiction in early recovery is designed to support your physical, mental, and emotional health, giving you every chance for long-term success.

The fact is that many of our patients arrive at a substance use disorder because of unaddressed issues such as trauma or anxiety, so the counseling we provide is crucial.

During your recovery care, we monitor you closely and listen to your concerns so that we can address problems as they arise to ensure you stay on track.

If you’d like comprehensive and compassionate care during your recovery, contact our office in Bothell, Washington, to set up a confidential consultation. You can even make the appointment with our booking tool while you’re here on the website.
