Addiction Assessment

Your first appointment with Dr de Silva will involve a one hour initial addiction assessment, which will include a diagnosis (if appropriate) and an addiction treatment plan. The action plan could suggest the prescription of medication or the referral on to a psychologist or a psychotherapist. Dr de Silva will openly discuss the different treatment options and create a plan with you.

Addiction Treatment

The length of time to overcome an addiction very much depends on the severity and the nature of the issue.  Many patients require between six and ten sessions with Dr de Silva or with the referral psychologist or psychotherapist. Each case is different and it could take longer for a more complex addiction.

In some cases the individual benefits from taking themselves away from familiar surroundings.
