Joseph Reoux, MD

Personal Statement

My primary interest and expertise is in the assessment and treatment of substance use disorders in adults, including those with co-occurring psychiatric disorders and individuals needing stabilization early in their episode of care.   Assisting treatment with medication to manage withdrawal symptoms or support ongoing abstinence are also areas of expertise, combined with a psychotherapeutic approach incorporating motivation enhancement, twelve-step facilitation, cognitive-behavioral, supportive, and psychodynamic perspectives to promote recovery.  I am also involved in the clinical and didactic education of medical students, nurse practitioner students, medicine residents, psychiatry residents and addiction fellows.
