Primary Care focused on substance use
At Midtown Health and Wellness, we provide primary care with a focus on individuals that are in recovery or are currently using substances. Long term use of drugs and alcohol can negatively impact one’s physical health and ongoing medical conditions need to be addressed by physicians with experience in addiction and recovery. The physicians at Midtown Health and Wellness will treat you with dignity and respect. We will meet you where you are currently at in your recovery.
Your primary care will consist of a thorough physical exam and lab work to determine your current health and how the use of drugs has affected it. We will use this information to create a medically supervised path to recovery or to support your current recovery.
Beginning The Process With Midtown Health and Wellness
The process of primary addiction care at Midtown Health and Wellness consists of 3 steps:
Step 1: Phone Assessment
We will discuss your history and circumstances the very first time you contact Midtown. During this screening, we discuss whether our primary care program is appropriate for you. Factors will include the extent of your current use, your physical and mental health, and goals for the future.
In addition, we will help you to understand your insurance coverage for our programs.
Step 2: In-office Assessment
On your first visit to the office, a medical team including physicians and therapists will assess your physical and mental health. Based on this assessment, we create a personalized primary care plan for you.
Depending on your current care, you will likely receive additional testing that is appropriate for you, such as blood work and an EKG.
Step 3: Follow up
After your first visit, a follow up visit will be necessary to review lab results and other testing.
A plan will be created to help you return to health or to maintain your current health.
