Dr. Andreas J. Edrich
MD, FASAM, MRO
Dr. Andreas J. Edrich specializes in the balancing act between optimization of safe opioid, comprehensive, respectful pain management and addiction care. Dr. Edrich has been practicing medicine for 21 years and is a master of pain and addiction, pharmacogenomics and treating patients with psychiatric/mental health problems. Dr. Edrich helps people of all ages and stages find better health. He is board-certified in both Family Medicine and addiction medicine and is a certified Medical Review Officer. He understands the complexity of mental health, addiction and pain management and treats the biological, psychological, and sociological aspects that factor into a strong recovery. He has helped hundreds of patients gain control over their lives through not only medication and integrated treatment plans for mental health but also strongly believes in the role of safe non-medication treatments such as cognitive behavioral therapy and the FDA approved use of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS). Together with TMS center in Centennial Dr Edrich functions as the medical director and initiates TMS treatments for patients with resistant major depression.
Dr Edrich’s addiction medicine practice revolves around using all tools available such as suboxone and psychotherapy to free patients from the bonds of opioids, alcohol, methamphetamines, cocaine and others. He firmly believes that treating the underlying causes of the substance use is paramount and to this end he practices cautious use of medications balancing the benefits, the risks and using great amounts of patient-centered education to enlist and engage their participation in the entire treatment process. He is well known to spend hours simply explaining the process and the options without ever suggesting or insisting that a patient take a medication. He believes that cooperative work together will allow him and the patient to arrive at a mutually agreeable and personally tailored treatment program.
In addition, Dr Edrich also works carefully with local obstetricians to help pregnant women get thru their pregnancies while treating their substance use and mental health problems carefully ensuring the safety of the mother and the child. He reminds all patients that confidentiality is paramount in his line of work and reassures all patients that none of their information is ever released to any one ever without express written consent by the patient. This is especially important for pregnant women who need not fear that their child will be taken away or CEO’s of large companies who need not fear that their work will ever discover their past use.
Our goal at Heritage Hills Addiction Medicine and Mental Health is to conscientiously, diligently and with purpose treat our patients in a respectful manner that honors their needs and balances risks and benefits while providing unparalleled patient education and participation. https://www.hhfamilymedicine.com/ 303 792 3333
