Substance Abuse

Perhaps you started using substances because you liked the way they made you feel. Now you are using more of the substance to reach the level of enjoyment you experienced before. You may feel scared or ashamed or think there is no way out.

Our discreet, flexible therapy is non-judgmental and caring. Our goal is to help you stay in school, keep your job, and protect your relationships. We use talk therapy to help you understand your emotions, and medication to alleviate cravings while you decrease your use and achieve sobriety.

Bipolar Disorder

If you feel irritable or extremely happy for no reason, while at other times you feel depressed, you might have bipolar disorder. Perhaps you feel like you have found the solution to the world’s problems or that you are more special than everyone else and can single-handedly save the world. Perhaps your mind races, or your words come out too quickly and won’t slow down.

There are several medical conditions, and even certain medications, that can create symptoms of mania or hypomania, which are those seen in bipolar disorder. SohoMD can diagnose your problem and help you handle it with mood stabilizers. We also provide advice on lifestyle habits that can help you achieve and maintain mood stability.

Other Addictions

You may have heard of people becoming addicted to gambling, video games, sex, food, or shopping. Any behavior that gets in the way of your ability to meet your obligations or maintain balance in your life can be defined as an addiction. Several factors can drive this behavior, such as an underlying mood or anxiety disorder, coupled with a personality disorder or an impulse control disorder. In some cases, the behavior can be caused by an underlying physical condition or a medication.

SohoMD can carry out a comprehensive evaluation to determine the root cause of your behavior. We can work with you to develop a treatment plan that uses a combination of talk therapy, support groups, and medications to address the symptoms and help you live a happier, healthier life.
