Functional medicine is a biology-based approach that focuses on identifying causes of disease. Each symptom or differential diagnosis may be one of many contributing to an individual’s illness.
As addiction impacts every aspect of a person's biology, the evaluation must be comprehensive. We do not rush this process. Whether early in recovery or years into the process, people face many complications - pain issues, depression, anxiety, hormonal changes.
If these are not assessed and faced in a safe and open manner, recovery can be jeopardized.
