We are powered by a balanced approach — curating an individualized, evidence-based recovery program that supports our clients not just medically, but emotionally, physically, and socially as well.
Here at Thalia Medical Center, we don’t tolerate self-shame. We don’t care what you look like, the car you drive, your background, or your history. We push our clients to first understand that addiction is a primary, chronic disease of the brain, and second, to eliminate blame when it comes to recovery and health.
Thalia Medical Center is unique from other practices because we offer clients a safe, private way to detox while staying connected to their support systems at home. Our personalized outpatient and at-home programs are for appropriate clients who want to stay connected to their lives and detox comfortably from their homes. We send medical staff and equipment right to your door for daily medication checks and our customized IV Recovery Boosts. These infusions are designed to restore the vitamins, minerals, and fluids to jump start your recovery, reduce overall fatigue, and help your immune system function optimally. Each infusion is tailored to your specific needs, is contingent upon your blood levels, and modified per your response to therapy.
I've always had an immense curiosity about what makes people tick. Although I began my career in primary care, I've dedicated my life to holistic Addiction Medicine because it allows me to work collaboratively to formulate a personal treatment plan with each client. My background in Family Medicine gives me the foundation to ask the right questions and search for underlying challenges that mental health disorders and substance use disorder can present.
