Sandor J. Woren, D.O. is a 1984 graduate of Western University of Health Sciences, College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific. He is board-certified in both Emergency Medicine and Family Practice.Dr. Woren developed a particular interest in the problem of opiate addiction during a career that spanned more than three decades in emergency medicine and primary care. Since the introduction of a truly effective medical treatment Suboxone® for opiate dependence, he developed a thriving practice devoted exclusively to this condition.
Dr. Woren takes a non-judgmental approach, providing individualized medical therapy for the condition of opiate dependence. Using a practical, economic, low-hassle approach, he employs excellent listening and history-taking skills, physical examination, and social and occupational rehabilitation skills to customize an effective medical plan to induce long term remission of their opiate dependence.
Dr. Woren’s successes include hundreds of patients who he has treated successfully using a traditional medical approach. Although many programs require inpatient therapy, psychological therapy, or mandatory group therapy, Dr. Woren prefers a simple approach based on a traditional physician-patient relationship.
Dr. Woren has referrals available for patients in need of psychotherapy or who suffer additional psychiatric or physical problems. But in reality, few opiate-addicted patients require these services. Since the introduction of the highly effective medication buprenorphine (Suboxone® , Subutex®), most patients can break their dependencies on opiates overnight.
Traditional drug treatment assumes that various psychological problems or pathologies are the cause of opiate abuse. Dr. Woren assumes just the opposite: Persistent use of opiates causes specific physiological brain changes, mimic psychiatric disorders. Nearly all opiate-dependent patients are socially or occupationally impaired to some extent. Thus, these patients are often misdiagnosed and mistreated. It is more often the rule than the exception that prolonged abstinence from opiates will result in normalized social and occupational function.
As already mentioned, Dr. Woren is an osteopathic physician. Although virtually everyone is familiar with more numerous allopathic (M.D.) physicians, many people ask, “What is a D.O.?“ For more information, click on the hyperlink.
Suffice to say, osteopathic physicians, undergo the same rigorous training and licensing procedures as their M.D. counterparts. Both D.O.s and M.D.s practice all medicine branches and surgery and are fully licensed physicians in all 50 states and foreign countries. To achieve the optimum result, D.O.s are trained from the start as holistic physicians. They evaluate the entire patient, including his or her social, domestic, and occupational situation, in addition to the primary disease process.
