Herbert N. Avart, DO is the Founder of My Addiction Physician and specializes in the treatment & rehabilitation of individuals who are dependent or addicted to prescription pain medications, heroin, opiates, and/or alcohol, as well as patients suffering with opiate-dependent chronic pain. Dr. Avart also treats patients who are investigating ways to safely get off bupenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone/Zubsolv). However, this is NOT a 12-step program — it is so much more than that.
Dr. Avart created My Addiction Physician out of a deep desire to approach addiction treatment issues more comprehensively and personally than the traditionally predominant models of drug addiction treatment and recovery. He recognizes that each patient brings to him an entirely unique set of circumstances and that the typical “one size fits all” approaches to addiction treatment and recovery so prevalent in today’s healthcare community are not producing successful outcomes. He cites that the core failure of most drug addiction treatment programs is the lack of focus on restoring independence to the individual.
Recovering from drug addiction is ALL about restoring the independence of the addicted individual and that’s exactly what My Addiction Physician helps you to do!
