The Initial Evaluation
The initial evaluation at VIP Health consists of:
A comprehensive physical examination will be performed by a physician, in addition to an in-depth conversation about your overall health including your medical history.
The purpose is to rule out infectious diseases or other medical conditions. The laboratory testing also insures the safety of the patient during the withdrawal period.
We provide an extensive psychological evaluation to identify and address clinical problems that could interfere with the recovery process.
