Addiction Medicine
At Baptist Health's Care & Counseling Services​, addiction treatment is guided by addiction medicine. Why? Addiction is a brain disease, impacting both the body's organ systems and mental health.

Ours is a holistic approach to treatment that begins with a comprehensive assessment, which includes an evaluation and a proper diagnosis. With that critical information about the patient's physical and mental health, we develop an individualized treatment strategy. Known for our award-winning care, we provide evidence-based treatments designed to treat the whole patient.

Our approach to treatment is also family focused. Because it affects families, not just our patients, we support family members affected by our patients drinking and drug abuse. Recovery that continues beyond the initial treatment, depends on development of healthy coping strategies for both patients and families. Our therapists give family members and patients the most effective tools for sustained recovery.

People with chronic and relapsing diseases like diabetes, heart disease and addiction, require a coordinated combination of intensive treatments that restore and support physical and mental health  -- all guided by medical care that is sound, advanced and compassionate. Treatment of the body, mind and spirit are essential to remission and recovery.  Our services utilize our advanced medical resources, intensive therapies and the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Members of our team are addiction experts, including our physicians, who are specialists in the field of addiction medicine. We are trained to evaluate and diagnose addiction, and to develop and implement treatment and prevention strategies for patients and families.

    Strengths = Healthy Life
    In active alcohol and drug addiction, we build routines and relationships that include our addiction and its effects. The addiction grows bigger, while healthy activities we may have enjoyed disappear along with the desire to pursue them.  
    In all of our services and programs, our strengths-based approach to treatment helps patients build habits that focus on their strengths -- healthy pursuits that bring joy and a sense of purpose. During treatment, and in recovery, substituting the desire to use with that healthy pursuit results in rewards and sustained recovery.
    Recovery starts here.
