Whether this is your first time seeking treatment or you’ve tried other methods without lasting success, Dr. Washton will design a personalized treatment plan that meets your individual needs. While standard treatment programs use a “one-size-fits-all” approach, Dr. Washton tailors the treatment to fit each person’s needs and circumstances. He recognizes that there are many different types of alcohol and drug problems ranging from problematic use to full-blown addiction; and, that other mental health issues such as depression and anxiety that are often intertwined with substance use also need to be competently addressed.
With over four decades of experience as an addiction psychologist, Dr. Washton has learned that no single approach is best for everyone. Some people do best with individual therapy, others with group therapy, and still others with a combination of both individual and group therapy. Some may also benefit from medications that can help to reduce cravings, prevent relapse, and treat alleviate co-occurring psychiatric issues such as depression, anxiety, and various other mood disorders.
Dr. Washton offers a menu of treatment options that include individual therapy sessions dedicated exclusively to your own personal issues and/or small group sessions that provide a unique forum for getting support and advice from other high-functioning people who are motivated to change.
