About me

Specializing in the Medical Treatment of Addictions

I have practiced Addiction Medicine for more than three decades. I am the Past President of the Northern New England Society of Addiction Medicine and Past President of both the Virginia and Pennsylvania Societies of Addiction Medicine. I am also a Fellow of the American Society of American Medicine and a Diplomate of the American Board of Addiction Medicine. I serve as the Editor-in-Chief of the American Society of Addiction Medicine Magazine. 


I am currently working with the Lunder-Dineen Health Education Alliance to develop and disseminate evidence-based education about substance abuse and addiction. Lunder-Dineen is a collaboration between the Lunder Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital.

I am a passionate advocate for addiction treatment and a nationally known educator and have taught addiction medicine in China and helped develop a treatment program for drug-addicted homeless boys in Turkey. In 2009, I was named “Caregiver of the Year” by the Maine Hospital Association and Down East Magazine named me Maine’s “Top Doctor in Addiction Medicine” in 2014 and 2015.  I have just been awarded the American Society of Addiction Medicine's 2017 Achievement Award.
