Addiction Medicine

Treating you with care and helping you find hope for tomorrow

Right care, Right time. 

Addiction is a psychological and physical inability to stop consuming a chemical, drug, activity, or substance even though it is causing psychological and physical harm. It is an equal opportunity affliction that affects people without regard to economic circumstance, education, race, geography, IQ, or any other factors. 

But there are effective treatments, and Lee Health's qualified, compassionate team will help you find ways to manage addiction. This includes medication, therapy and constant access to support and encouragement.

Team members may include health care professionals of every kind including physicians, counselors, psychologists, social workers, nurses, physician assistants, and staff members who are uniquely trained to deal with addiction.

Who is appropriate for outpatient treatment?

Our program works best for those individuals who are experiencing mild to moderate symptoms, are motivated to stop using, and for those who want to recover while continuing their activities of daily living. 

Outpatient services are Monday through Friday, 8 AM to 4:30 PM
