David I. Deyhimy, MD, built a career as a respected anesthesiologist, when he turned his focus onto reducing pain of a different sort. As an addiction medicine specialist, he approaches addiction not as a moral failing, but as a chronic and treatable disease of the brain.
He is dedicated to helping those suffering from drug addiction and preventing overdose deaths from opioids using medical research and evidence-based drug and alcohol addiction treatments. He uses Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT), which works by dramatically reducing cravings, improving treatment engagement and retention, helping prevent relapse, and reducing the incidence of death from overdose.
