What is addiction, really? It is a sign, a signal, a symptom of distress. It is a language that tells us about a plight that must be understood.
We are a small private practice in the foothills of the Catskills specializing in the treatment of substance abuse. Our office provides a warm, welcoming and non-judgmental environment dedicated to the sobriety and recovery of our patients. Although our primary focus is on the opioid crisis which is ravaging the country at large, we also treat addictions to other substances including alcohol.
Both Doctors Lucinda and Kurt Grovenburg are Fellows of the American Society of Addiction Medicine and have been Board Certified in Addiction Medicine since 2009. We have been involved in Addiction Medicine for over 20 years and have worked in acute detox, traditional 28-day rehabilitation, and long-term therapeutic community settings. Our practice is committed to providing continuity of care in a personalized manner in order to achieve a deeper appreciation and understanding of our patients.
For the opioid dependent patient, we offer MAT (Medication Assisted Treatment) which includes Suboxone, Buprenorphine, Zubsolv, Sublocade (monthly injection of extended release Buprenorphine) and Vivitrol (monthly injection of extended release Naltrexone) along with one-on-one counseling at each visit. Both Lucinda and Kurt are well versed in treating their patient's mental health comorbidities in addition to their primary addiction disorder. Together with the patient we determine which option best suits the individual's needs. We also offer adjunct treatment and recovery modalities. There is a labyrinth (a walking meditation) at our Kerhonkson site and patients are encouraged to use it before/after each counseling session to help achieve and maintain focus. We also have a sensory deprivation tank (magnesium float tank) that many of our patients have found to be beneficial in calming their minds and stilling their anxieties.
In addition to our Kerhonkson site in Ulster County, we have an office in Margaretville for the convenience of our patients in Delaware County.
The many steps in the journey to recovery are both very personal, yet shared experiences. The need for mutual commitment by both patient and physician on that journey
can not be overstated.
