Behavioral Medicine


Behavioral Medicine and Psychotherapy


How is behavioral medicine different from Psychiatry? By providing a team approach to the combination of medical assessment, psychopharmacology, psychological diagnosis and psychotherapy, we achieve the best aspects of psychiatric care without some of the inherent conflicts of interest when these practices are all combined into one doctor.

We also provide a safe, contained outpatient treatment environment where individuals can work through difficult issues while receiving optimal care from our integrative team.

The medical side of the practice is led by Medical Director Paul Abramson MD, a physician board certified in Family Medicine and Addiction Medicine, with special expertise in psychopharmacology.

We integrate Behavioral Medicine into each of our specialties.


Our expert staff of medical doctors, psychologists and psychotherapists work closely together provide a comprehensive plan for those with complex situations. We have found that taking an integrated approach results in much more rapid progress and more sustainable solutions.

Integrative Substance Use Disorder Treatment


We offer a comprehensive and intensive approach to drug abuse treatment that can include a combination of:

We can mobilize any needed resources based on an individual’s unique needs after our comprehensive initial evaluation, and are expert at keeping people independent and “outpatient” who are otherwise facing going to a facility, residential drug treatment center or other institutional setting.

Integrative Pain Management


We work with many patients suffering from chronic conditions where pain is a prominent symptom, who wish to pursue a comprehensive and multimodal approach different from the standard opiates and injections offered by conventional “pain medicine” specialists. We perform a comprehensive assessment, combining specific pharmacologic approaches with health psychology, nutrition, and acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, to arrive at a treatment process individualized to each patient.

Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy


Ketamine is a well-known medication, traditionally used in anesthesia and emergency medicine, that in recent years has been re-purposed to treat resistant psychological conditions and chronic pain. We have developed substantial expertise in using ketamine to augment the psychological and pharmacologic treatment of conditions such as depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, PTSD and anxiety, in a structured and well-supervised environment. Our particular expertise is in helping our patients to integrate the ketamine experience and to use it in support of a longer-term integrated treatment plan.

In addition to medical management, improved accountability and advanced diagnostic testing, psychotherapy is a key component of our patients' success in improving function and comfort, by breaking free of old patterns to achieve their goals.

“I started with a small solo medical practice, a style of practicing medicine like my grandfather and great-grandfather did, focusing on the patient and applying great attention to detail. As we grow in size, we’re maintaining this commitment to quality, ethics and the dotor-patient relationship while using the best tools and technology from every discipline to achieve optimal results.”
