Addiction & Recovery

Addiction & Recovery

The philosophy of care at MedPsych Integrated of Raleigh, North Carolina forms around what our patients need for combined mental and physical wellness. This individualized treatment involves integrated medical and psychiatric approaches. We thread this philosophy through addiction recovery, addressing your mental, physical and spiritual needs and helping you find answers for, “How did I get here, into addiction?” By uncovering these answers, we help you pave the pathway to your own sustainable wellness.

Creating a Pathway for Your Sustainable Addiction Recovery

At MedPsych Integrated, your addiction recovery starts under the care of Nadia S. Meyer, MD, a licensed psychiatrist board certified in psychiatry, internal medicine and addiction psychiatry. Together with her team of highly qualified physician assistants, Dr. Meyer develops your own unique treatment plan. This planning starts with a thorough physical and mental health screening.

Screenings and methods utilized to form your individualized treatment plan include:

There is no quick fix for drug or alcohol abuse recovery. Instead, you have much work ahead of you. But you are not alone in this journey. Your treatment team at MedPsych Integrated is here to help you understand your addiction, heal from past trauma and work through mental and physical health issues. Throughout this process, we also help you build healthy coping skills and create a new life.

How MedPsych Integrated Treats Your Addiction

MedPsych Integrated works with you toward alcohol or drug abuse recovery on an outpatient basis and according to your individual needs. You may need treatment only for your substance abuse. Or, maybe you have a co-occurring dual diagnosis disorder like depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder or PTSD. Either way, our qualified professionals offer effective therapies, medication management and other practices to get you back to better health.

Some of our outpatient substance abuse treatment modalities include:

  • Psychotherapy
  • Individual counseling
  • Family or couples counseling
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
  • Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)

As the treatment professionals of MedPsych Integrated know, an integrated approach is critical for your recovery from substance abuse. But why? To start, mental health and physical health are closely connected. At the same time, a significant number of people with substance abuse problems are self-medicating other untreated issues in their lives. These issues often include depression, anxiety, schizophrenia or even physical health problems.

Risk factors for drug or alcohol dependence include:

  • Genetics
  • Teen substance use
  • Environment
  • Drug of choice
  • Method of use
  • Stress
  • Metabolism
  • Physical conditions like pain
  • Mental health problems

Truly integrated care starts with physical health screenings. At MedPsych Integrated, your treatment plan begins to take shape after you go through an on-site blood draw, genetic testing and other evaluations. These tests help us gain insight into your mental and physical wellness. Through these results and psychiatric analysis, a clearer picture forms of your addiction recovery and mental health needs.
