Our Process

Dr. Watson uses a highly specialized and personal approach to treating alcohol and opioid addictions, known as Direct Physician Care. This compassionate, personalized, and expertly guided approach provides the highest level of care for those suffering from alcohol and opioid addictions while offering the best chance of successful recovery.

Direct Physician Care

One-on-One Relationship

At the core of the Direct Physician Care model is an undivided, one-on-one relationship between you and Dr. Watson, a board-certified addiction specialist. This exclusive focus ensures the highest level of medical expertise to guide you through your recovery journey.

Continuity in Care

The one-on-one relationship fosters a continuity of care that is invaluable in treating complex medical diseases like opioid use disorder and alcohol use disorder. This results in significantly improved outcomes and an elevated standard of personalized care.

Traditional treatment methods often involve multiple providers, leading to a confusing array of mixed and even contradicting messages. In Dr. Watson's Direct Physician Care model, you receive consistent, clear guidance from a single medical expert, enhancing your treatments effectiveness.

A Flexible, Compassionate Approach

The "one-size-fits-all" approach commonly used in other treatment facilities lacks the compassion and flexibility needed for optimal outcomes. Policy-driven treatments may have higher relapse rates. Direct Physician Care is agile, allowing real-time adjustments to treatment plans to suit ever-changing patient needs.

Effective and Safe Treatments

Personalized Treatment Plans

Dr. Watson employs a guidance-cooperative model that facilitates personalized treatment plans. This targeted approach improves compliance, extends maintenance periods, and minimizes the risk of divergence and relapse. All treatment options are safe, FDA approved treatments that Dr. Watson will tailor to your exact needs.

In Conjunction with Counseling / Psychotherapy

A Focused Path to Recovery

By engaging in Direct Physician Care with Dr. Watson, you benefit from a precise and focused path to recovery. This streamlined approach eliminates distractions, providing you the best chance for a successful, lasting recovery.

Integration with Counseling / Psychotherapy

All of these treatments are non-substitutes for traditional talk therapy, but work best when used in combination. Patients who follow Dr. Watson's treatment strategies and continue traditional talk therapy have the highest chance of recovery. If you need help finding a therapist or support group, we will be more than happy to guide you to fit your needs.

The Benefits of Our Approach

Our private office-based setting provides more personalized care due to our smaller client-to-provider ratio. This results in a more tailored treatment approach, which considers the unique circumstances of the individual’s addiction.

Institutional treatment can sometimes have a stigma attached, increasing shame and embarrassment. Our private office setting feels more like a regular family practice office, less intimidating, and more relaxing.

Direct Physician Care means you see the same provider throughout their treatment, fostering a deeper therapeutic relationship and continuity of care.

Privacy can be a significant concern for individuals seeking treatment for addiction. In our private office setting, there are fewer people, making it easier to keep the treatment confidential.

Our private office provides more flexible scheduling options, allowing our clients to continue with their work, school, or family commitments.

We openly welcome family members and supportive friends to accompany clients to office-based treatments. Family involvement in the treatment process can be crucial for recovery.

Telehealth for Your Convenience

  • With secure video consultations, you can consistently engage with Dr. James Watson, ensuring your treatment is easily reachable and maintained.
