Rethinking Withdrawal Management
Jul 18th, 2019 by medicalmind
George Kolodner is the Founder of Kolmac Outpatient Recovery Centers. In 1973 he established the first intensive outpatient addiction treatment program, and he’s found that patients who receive withdrawal management in an outpatient setting are much more likely to continue with follow-up treatment. He discusses how he developed an alternative to inpatient rehab programs and the importance of continuity of care.
You can hear more from Dr. Kolodner in a webinar in the APA Learning Center, “Rethinking Withdrawal Management”. Information about the Providers’ Clinical Support System can be found at www.pcssNOW.org.
