Primary Care Q&A

What is primary care?

Primary care is the most common medical care you receive throughout the year. Your primary care doctor manages your routine health care needs, including physical exams, vaccinations, acute and chronic disease treatment, and health education.

If you’re feeling unwell or have a question regarding your health, your primary care doctor is the first person you turn to for answers.

How does primary care work with addiction medicine?

When you’re struggling with addiction, certain primary care treatments and therapies can hinder your progress and present new challenges.

At Axxis Med Management and Primary Care, your provider’s goal is to support your recovery from addiction. That’s why your provider always has an addiction medicine mindset when performing primary care duties.

To ensure you recover without relapsing, your provider may decide not to prescribe certain medications if they have a history of being addictive.

Your doctor makes sure that the medical advice and treatment you receive matches the quality of addiction treatment received in-house.

How do I know if I need primary care?

When you first arrive at Axxis Med Management and Primary Care, your provider performs a full medical assessment to evaluate your overall health and determine which medical treatments you need to stay healthy while reaching your recovery goals.

Addiction to opioids, alcohol, and other substances can harm your physical health, leading to chronic health conditions. With an addiction mindset, your provider can maintain and improve your overall health.

Your first medical assessment may include a physical exam, blood work, imaging tests, and a complete review of your medical history to determine the right type of primary care for you.

By combining primary care, addiction medicine, and behavioral health practices, your provider can effectively care for your physical, emotional, and mental health while helping you overcome addiction.

Your provider continuously monitors your health throughout your stay at Axxis Med Management and Primary Care if you participate in an inpatient program. 

If you experience acute symptoms, such as a sore throat, headache, fatigue, fever, nausea and vomiting, or diarrhea, your provider can assess your symptoms and determine the right treatment for you without hindering your recovery goals.
