Dr Edrich’s addiction medicine practice revolves around using all tools available such as suboxone and psychotherapy to free patients from the bonds of opioids, alcohol, methamphetamines, cocaine and others. He firmly believes that treating the underlying causes of the substance use is paramount and to this end he practices cautious use of medications balancing the benefits, the risks and using great amounts of patient-centered education to enlist and engage their participation in the entire treatment process. He is well known to spend hours simply explaining the process and the options without ever suggesting or insisting that a patient take a medication. He believes that cooperative work together will allow him and the patient to arrive at a mutually agreeable and personally tailored treatment program.
In addition, Dr Edrich also works carefully with local obstetricians to help pregnant women get thru their pregnancies while treating their substance use and mental health problems carefully ensuring the safety of the mother and the child. He reminds all patients that confidentiality is paramount in his line of work and reassures all patients that none of their information is ever released to any one ever without express written consent by the patient. This is especially important for pregnant women who need not fear that their child will be taken away or CEO’s of large companies who need not fear that their work will ever discover their past use.
Our goal at Heritage Hills Addiction Medicine and Mental Health is to conscientiously, diligently and with purpose treat our patients in a respectful manner that honors their needs and balances risks and benefits while providing unparalleled patient education and participation.
This is a fantastic practice. It’s like we’ve stepped back in time. They actually sit down and try and help you when you’re sick instead of feeling like you’re on a conveyor belt to get antibiotics. Dr. Nikki and Dr Edrich are the best there are!
