  • Mental evaluations to uncover existing conditions including anxiety, depression and mental illness that could instigate drug use.
  • Behavioral counseling designed to teach healthier habits for coping with the daily stress that could trigger drug use.
  • Various combinations of medicines and the use of medical devices to manage and control symptoms.
  • Regular evaluation to assess how treatments are working and where modifications should be made to develop a more customized approach.
