Trying to cope with illnesses like diabetes or high blood pressure when you're going through an addiction rehabilitation program makes the experience even more of a challenge. Many recovery patients do not have a primary care physician or may neglect regular check-ups. In these cases, patients sometimes develop health conditions that are not being properly treated and can stand in the way of achieving their recovery. To help, Victory Recovery Partners provides Wellness services in Hempstead, Farmingville, Shirley, Hicksville, and Massapequa, New York. Call the nearest office to find out more or book an appointment online today.
Wellness is a broad term for the overall state of your health. Optimizing your wellness improves the chances of a successful recovery from addiction as well as significantly enhances your quality of life.
Many patients living with substance use disorders also have other medical conditions that, without treatment, can delay recovery from addiction or make their recovery far more challenging.
Victory Recovery Partners often finds that patients aren't seeing their primary care provider for regular medical treatment and periodic checkups, which means they're not receiving the therapies and support they need.
The skilled professionals at Victory Recovery Partners also believe that to heal victims of a substance use disorder, they need to treat the whole patient rather than just tackling their symptoms. The wellness services aim to improve every aspect of your health to increase the chances of overcoming your addiction.
Examples of conditions Victory Recovery Partners addresses through its wellness program include:
There are some conditions for which Victory Recovery Partners doesn't provide wellness care, such as cold and flu symptoms, cuts, abrasions, fractures, and other urgent care-type services. All Wellness patients need to be enrolled in the core outpatient addiction recovery or intensive outpatient program.
Wellness services provided by Victory Recovery Partners include physical exams and blood tests to assess your condition, followed by lifestyle advice and support, and medication management.
Medication management ensures that prescriptions you need to take for conditions unrelated to your addiction are necessary, safe, taken at the correct dose, and won't affect your addiction treatment program.
Some of the ailments that don't appear to be related to substance use disorder at first often do have links – for example, hepatitis C and HIV infections are often due to sharing needles or engaging in unprotected sexual intercourse while under the influence of your substance of choice.
As a result, there's often a cross-over between the different types of co-occurring disorders. Whatever your situation is, you can be sure your Victory Recovery Partners provider will make sure they're doing everything they can to optimize your wellness.
