What We Do
Chronic Pain Problems
For pain or dependence problems, Dr. Reeves has the only office based practice in West Florida approved by the DEA to provide treatment to 275 patients with a medication that most Doctors are not certified to use, buprenorphine. This medicine is an extremely effective pain reliever for chronic pain without known dangers of usual pain medications. It can be used to transition off of other medications or as ongoing treatment. Such conditions we have seen direct results from buprenorphine are complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), degenerative disc disease, arthritis, diabetic neuropathy, Crohn’s Disease, irritable bowl syndrome, endometriosis, neck/back pain, other neuropathies, and other chronic issues.
Emotional issues such as anxiety, depression, poor concentration, stress, restlessness, or insomnia that accompany the above issues. Wake up meds, sleep meds, get up and go meds, and slow down meds can all lead to a slow steady loss of the things you used to do and enjoy. There are more safe and effective ways to treat all of these rather than the “treatment as usual” that can lead to dependence or is no longer working.
Prescription Medicine Dependencies
We can help with dependencies due to those prescribed for pain, sleep, or anxiety problems. After extended use, these medications lose effectiveness or seem to make the problems worse.
Whether it is due to a past injury, prescription medications, or the desire to find relief, addiction leads to a merry-go-round of failed attempts to stop using. Buprenorphine and other Medication Assisted Treatments are provided. Dr. Reeves is certified by SAMHSA (Substance Use and Mental Health Services Administration).
