Addiction Psychiatry

A medical specialisation of psychiatry called addiction psychiatry focuses on assessing, diagnosing, and treating persons who have one or more illnesses connected to addiction. The technique used in addiction medicine is more psychosocial. Focus is placed on identifying and treating mental diseases that coexist with addiction, regardless of whether they were the addiction's primary cause or an effect. Addiction psychiatry takes physical health into account in the same way that addiction medicine does.

In addition to treating the addiction, professionals want to help their patients get better or keep their physical health.
