Esteemed Addiction Psychiatrist Joins Promises® Professionals Treatment Program
Matthew Goldenberg, D.O., a board certified psychiatrist and addiction psychiatry specialist, joins Promises Treatment Centers® as Associate Medical Director of Professionals Health Services.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 9, 2016 – Promises Treatment Centers® is proud to welcome Matthew Goldenberg, D.O., as Associate Medical Director of Professionals Health Services in its drug rehab for professionals. Dr. Goldenberg, a member of the medical staff at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center’s Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences, completed an addiction psychiatry fellowship at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA/Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. He performed his psychiatry residency at Banner University Medical Center-Phoenix. Dr. Goldenberg has published several peer-reviewed articles, given Grand Rounds presentations, and has presented research findings at numerous national conferences.
“At Promises Treatment Centers, I am eager to work alongside a world-class team that helps professionals suffering from the disease of addiction preserve their lives and careers,” Dr. Goldenberg said. “Many people feel shame for seeking the care that they need and doctors and other professionals are no exception. A diagnosis of addiction or mental illness should not be judged as a character flaw, but rather as symptoms of complex interactions between biological, psychological and social factors that require proper diagnosis, treatment and healing. It is on that basis that we develop client-centered and individualized treatment plans at Promises Professionals Treatment Program.”
Dr. Goldenberg, who has advocated for improving the delivery of mental health and addiction treatment on both the state and federal levels, believes it is vitally important to talk about mental illness in the same way as physical illness. “By shining a light on mental illness and addiction, we bring hope and improved access to care to those who are suffering,” Dr. Goldenberg said.
Located in the beautiful beach community of Santa Monica, California, Promises Treatment Centers serves professionals in a discrete setting with a highly individualized program. It is designed for licensed professionals, such as pilots, doctors and attorneys, who require fitness-for-duty evaluations and exceptional drug and alcohol treatment that builds on the 25-year success of state physician health programs.
“We are extremely pleased to welcome Dr. Goldenberg to the Promises family,” said Greg Skipper, M.D., Director of Professionals Health Services. “His passion for treating the whole individual, mind, body and spirit, perfectly aligns with the Promises treatment approach. Dr. Goldenberg’s knowledge and experience will be of immense benefit to our clients and their families.”
