What is an Addiction Specialist? Addiction specialists are addiction medicine physicians and addiction psychiatrists who hold either a board certification in addiction medicine from the American Board of Addiction Medicine (ABAM), a subspecialty board certification in addiction psychiatry from the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN), a subspecialty board certification in addiction medicine from the American Osteopathic Association (AOA), or certification in addiction medicine from the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM). They demonstrate by education, experience, and examination the requisite knowledge and skills to provide prevention, screening, intervention, and treatment for substance use and addiction. In addition, addiction specialists can recognize and treat the psychology and physical complications of addiction.

What to Expect: Our Board Certified Physicians perform a Complete Physical Exam during the patient's first appointment. We’ll go over your history, assess the patient's vital signs, perform a heart exam, lung exam, head and neck exam, abdominal exam, neurological exam, dermatological exam, and an extremities exam. We’ll run laboratory tests and gather an even further comprehensive understanding of the patient due to their blood count results, chemistry panel results and urinalysis results.
