Dr. Amanda Palmer: Taking An Integrative Approach to Addiction Treatment

Meet Dr. Amanda Palmer

Dr. Palmer is the Director of Medical Services here at The River Source, where she spearheads an approach to treatment that's unique in the industry. We use a proven, evidence-based treatment model to create success for our clients, but we also integrate naturopathic therapies in our care. 
The Importance of an Integrative Approach 

At The River Source, we take a holistic approach to rehab, because addiction affects different people in different ways. What works for one client isn't guaranteed to work for another, and a varied approach increases not only a client's comfort, but also, the chances that they'll find treatment that works for them.

Click here to read more about what Dr. Palmer says about our philosophy of "meeting clients where they're at" when it comes to providing treatment for addiction that's individualized to a client's needs.
