Richmond, VA – Addiction can ultimately ruin the lives of individuals affected with substance use disorder and also their families, because of this, the Virginia Center for Addiction Medicine (VCAM) is established to help heal everyone involved. Patients of VCAM receive professional and compassionate treatment which allows them to recover from their substance use disorder. At VCAM, patients get the best treatment options available. Patients are also provided with a comfortable environment while undergoing treatment for addiction.

“At VCAM we are ready to use every tool that has been proven to work, to seek help from our colleagues trained in other disciplines, and to encourage and promote the spiritual principles of recovery,” says company representative, Chantal Thompson. “Our goal is not just to treat but also to heal and to help our patients find the joy and freedom of recovery.”

VCAM offers Medical Assisted Treatment (MAT) for those who might need additional treatment apart from detoxification. VCAM also offers treatment medicines to aid patients as they continue to fight their addictions. Addiction Psychiatry is also available for patients; this is for counseling and additional therapy as the patient enters recovery. Care is needed to direct the patient to a state that is not dependent on illegal drugs or alcohol. The Addiction Psychiatry service ensures that the patient can lead a normal life free from any addictive substance.

For a successful treatment, VCAM also offers both group and individual therapies. VCAM understands that being in a group can reinforce treatment, as patients work together with professional medical staff for a more successful outcome. Group therapy offers patients the support needed to recover from addiction. At the core of recovery from addiction is the support of family and friends, which is why VCAM provides family consultation and intervention so everyone can better cope with the situation. Family consultation is a chance to rebuild lives and assist the individual in full recovery.

The Virginia Center for Addiction Medicine was founded by Dr. James Thompson in Richmond, VA. VCAM is made up of expert professionals specializing in the field of addiction medicine and addiction psychiatry. At VCAM there is compassionate care and targeted treatments administered by physicians and psychiatrists. VCAM is located at 2301 N. Parham Rd. #4, Richmond, VA.
