Welcome To DagmarLiepaMD.com
Medical research has discovered that addiction is a developed disease that produces biochemical changes in the brain. These changes in brain chemistry are the major factors in the physical symptoms of substance dependence that produce cravings and withdrawal.
Many people who try to become sober are simply overwhelmed by the cravings and withdrawal symptoms in spite of their best intentions.
Innovative new medical treatments are now available that can greatly reduce, eliminate or manage the cravings and withdrawal symptoms. This jump start into sobriety can give the patient a new window of clarity through which they can start to address the underlying behavioral and psychosocial issues that are a major component of any addiction. There is a symbiotic relationship between the addiction and the cognitive behavior, and both of them need to be addressed.
Whether it is twelve step programs or private therapy, confronting the underlying issues that are part of addiction with a clearer mind provides the greatest chance of staying in recovery.
We recognize that substance abuse/addiction is a brain disease that is chronic and is always associated with underlying psycho-social issues that require personalized treatment.
