"I went through Memorial Hermann PaRC to detox off alcohol and Norco. My family feels like I am a completely different person. The chronic pain program at Parc helped me manage my pain without whiskey or Norco. They taught me different ways to manage my pain and my family is much happier with me. Dr. Lai has helped me understand what to do when I feel my pain. I am so grateful for Memorial Hermann Parc and Dr. Lai. "

"Dr. Lai spent so much time with me explaining what Hydrocodone was doing to my body and brain. I was not convinced until I talked to my sister about the visit. He encouraged me to bring my husband with me at my next visit, so I did. He was also impressed with his compassion and suggestions to get off the medication. He provided many options on how to detox off the medications. I'm grateful for him and his staff. I will be going inpatient to detox! Wish me luck!"
