Holistic treatment for the mind, body, and spirit.

Healing from addiction requires a whole-person approach that addresses every aspect of a person’s life — from the mental and physical to real-world arenas of work, family, and friends. By harnessing the individual’s desire to change, we empower people to move toward resilience and recovery.

We utilize therapeutic treatment models that are evidence-based and have proven efficacy in not just treating substance abuse and mental health disorders, but that also instill life skills and provide the tools to build purpose-driven lives here in Raleigh, NC.

Our Philosophy

Clinical Sophistication

We understand that persons seeking treatment rarely present with a narrow, siloed set of symptomatology. Mental health is inherently related to physical, social, and spiritual health. That’s why we have a team of providers skilled in addiction medicine, mental health, and primary care. Advaita Integrated Medicine’s team of physicians, therapists, and coaches prioritize their own personal and professional growth so that we provide the most up-to-date best practices. We combine our individual areas of expertise with robust care coordination to help our patients achieve their wellness goals.

Whole-Person Care

We take a nuanced, patient-centered approach to treating all health conditions: physical, behavioral, emotional, and social. By leveraging an interdisciplinary team and coordinating care, Advaita Integrated Medicine is able to provide evidence-based, integrated care that treats the whole person: mind, body, and spirit.


We believe that everyone wants to live a purpose-driven life full of enjoyment. Advaita Integrated Medicine’s providers work alongside each patient to support flourishing in all aspects of their lives. Our patients may initially seek services to alleviate their symptoms, but we’re are committed to doing so much more. With our whole-person approach to wellness, we work to treat the root of the issue and create sustainable, positive change.

We want to reframe healthcare. Advaita Integrated Medicine’s providers will work with each patient to address all aspects of a patient’s life.
