Info for Clinician
An important responsibility of any physician or professional is recognizing chemical dependency to medication. Equally important to the health of the patient is identifying a potential dependency before it begins. This booklet, designed especially for physicians and addiction professionals, is a compilation of criteria to consider before prescribing benzodiazepines, barbiturates, and opiates to a patient. Created and tested by James A. Holder, MA, LPC, this quick, four-step process will more effectively identify patients who are at extreme risk of abusing certain medications and substances so alternative treatment can be provided.
