Dr. Mark Leeds joins us with The Rehab, a new podcast on our network that is about overcoming drug addiction. The topics range from medical treatment to spiritual fellowships and psychotherapy. Other forms of therapy will be explored as well. The underlying theme is that everyone is different and we cannot apply a single method of treatment to all people and expect it to work. Listening carefully to what works and does not work for an individual, treating people with respect and understanding that behaviors caused by addiction are the result of a medical condition are important. Patients presenting for treatment of addiction should be addressed with caring, compassion and understanding.
Dr. Leeds runs a micro medical practice by the beach in Fort Lauderdale, providing concierge medical care to the residents of the Galt Ocean Mile. He also provides medication assisted treatment (MAT) for the treatment of opioid dependence and addiction. Opioids and opiates include heroin, fentanyl, carfentanyl and many prescription analgesics.
