Information for Physicians

Farnum programs view the Primary Care Physician (PCP) as a vital stakeholder in the ongoing success of our participants. Before, during, and after a resident’s stay, we strongly encourage active involvement by the PCP and other medical professionals involved in the resident’s care. We include this page as a resource for you to gather more information on addictions, and to assist you in better understanding our program and its requirements.
