At Harbor View, our mission is to keep narcotic-tolerant or dependent patients from the psychosocial dysfunction related to addiction as they experience acute or chronic pain or are attempting to discontinue their narcotic prescription.
Our physicians have provided medical care and patient detoxification services to addicted and physically dependent patients for more than 22 years. This unique experience provides access to safe, patient-centered protocols that make Harbor View Medical one of the leading centers in the United States for addressing and treating dependence to prescription narcotics.
Harbor View Medical recognizes that most chronic pain treatments are provided by primary care physicians. However, sometimes the patient’s need for a coordinated, multidisciplinary care approach cannot be provided by a single caregiver. Patients who have not responded to best practices in the primary care setting now have access to sophisticated evaluation and non-narcotic treatment by a team of specialists. Learn more >
Today’s environment requires a new level of care to ensure that patients with acute and chronic-pain needs are appropriately screened, assessed, and cared for as they experience individual levels of tolerance and dependence associated with narcotic medication. At the same time, these patients need to be continually evaluated and monitored for the potential of addiction.
