More women are binge drinking, and more are becoming addicted to alcohol. It can be scary to lose control of how much you drink, but starting a conversation with someone you trust can be the first step to getting help. And if you think a friend or loved one as a drinking problem, there are effective ways to express concern.
I trained in family medicine in New York and was a primary care provider at a community health center for seven years. I completed fellowship programs in addiction medicine and hgh risk pregnancy at the Swedish Medical Center and am proud to be the medical director of Addiction Recovery Service.
I enjoy the honesty that patients show in sharing thier stories. I am enthusiastic to help patients with medications whenever possible but also appreciate the opportunity to help them find their own strengths and insights.
At the Swedish Addiction Recovery Service we offer inpatient treatment of alcohol and drug withdrawal, hospital based rehabilitation for pregnant women with substance use problems and outpatient medication management of chemical dependence. We work with patients using medical and behavioral treatments to help patients maintain sobriety and meet their life goals. We partner with other services in the community to help our patients obtain all the supports they need to be successful in their recovery. Patients can call 208-781-6048 to speak to one of our counselors and arrange admission to the inpatient unit or reach our outpatient clinic at 206-320-7288.
At the OB Outreach Prenatal Clinc, located in the Cherry Hill Family Medicine Residency, we provide prenatal care focused on the needs of women affected by addiction. For more information call 206-320-2999 or see our information online at http:\\oboutreach.org
