Patient Care Bio

My primary interest is in Addiction Psychiatry. I specailize in the pharmacological treatment of substance dependence and co-morbid psychiatric disorders at Strong Recovery and Strong Methadone Maintenance. I utilize both Suboxone and Methadone maintenance therapy for long-term treatment of these disorders. My primary psychotherapeutic approachs are motivational interviewing and brief interventions.

To schedule an evaluation for substance treatment alone or with comorbid psychiatric disorders, contact Strong Recovery Chemical Dependency at 275-3161.
