Meeting Dr. Washton for an initial consultation in a secure video session, is an important first step toward dealing more effectively with your alcohol or substance use problem. Together with Dr. Washton, you will explore what has brought you to this point, the changes you want to make, what obstacles stand in the way of making those changes, what short-term goals are realistic for you, and what treatment options are best for achieving those goals.
Dr. Washton will ask you detailed questions about yourself, your circumstances, your history, and any previous attempts you’ve made to deal with your alcohol or drug abuse problem. This will help him gain a clear, in-depth understanding of you, your needs, and what type of treatment makes the most sense for you. You will have the opportunity to ask Dr. Washton questions, to gain a sense of who he is, how he thinks, and how he can help you going forward.
Taking the next step
Dr. Washton will offer his recommendation and help you formulate an action plan to get started, assuming you are ready to move ahead. You may decide to see Dr. Washton for individual sessions and/or join one of his small private groups. Whether your goal is to completely stop using all substances or to moderate your drinking, Dr. Washton will provide you with expert guidance and support at each step of the process. If you need services beyond what Dr. Washton offers in his practice, he will refer you to other doctors or programs that can provide you with these services.
