Housecall-Based Addiction Medicine Services

Addiction affects not only the addict but their whole family. It can lead to job loss, divorce, estrangement, and mental illness. Often, both addicts and their families feel helpless to address the disease of Addiction and in turn become hopeless and depressed. It doesn’t have to be that way.

Addiction is a chronic disease and in that way is no different than diabetes – there are many available treatment options - each with an increasing rate of success. Whether the addiction is to alcohol, cocaine, opiates (heroin and prescribed medication), methamphetamine, crystal meth or other substances, an appropriate treatment plan can be developed and implemented.

Housecall MD NY specializes in addiction. Medical Director, Dr. David Seitz has more than 10 years experience in the field of substance abuse treatment. He has served as medical director of National Recovery Institute and Enter Alcoholism Services and was one of the first physicians in NYC to treat opiate addiction using Suboxone. He is a proponent of a combination of modalities (pharmaceuticals, group and individual therapy, etc.) to treat addictions to alcohol, cocaine, opiates, Ecstasy, Crystal Meth, Marijuana, Nicotine, Caffeine and other addictive drugs.
