Opioid Use Disorder is one of the most serious health conditions affecting millions of people worldwide. Current data suggests that the majority of cases begin with legitimate use of opioid painkillers prescribed by medical professionals for pain management. In these cases, opioids are used for a longer period of time than intended, and over time patients become addicted.
There are various treatment modalities for opioid use disorders, such as outpatient or residential rehabilitation programs, 12-step self-help groups, individual and group psychotherapies and Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT). Most patients need a combination of treatment approaches to overcome their addiction.
Dr. Vazirian provides Medication Assisted Treatment and individual psychotherapy for treatment of opioid addiction . He also treats other coexisting mental health conditions using pharmacotherapy (medications) and individual psychotherapy. Furthermore, Dr. Vazirian encourages his patients to use outside resources including self-help groups and individual/group therapies.
