Dr. Simon’s practice in addiction medicine
My name is Dave Simon. I am a medical doctor board certified in addiction medicine by the American Board of Addiction Medicine (“ABAM”). I started this practice in response to friends and colleagues who told me there is a need in northeast Connecticut for another physician with expertise in treating addictions. More specifically, there are folks in the area who are addicted to opioids and there are not enough qualified physicians to meet the needs of these folks.
In 2002 the United States approved buprenorphine (the major active ingredient in Suboxone) for use by specially credentialed doctors to treat opioid addiction. I have prescribed Suboxone for opioid addiction since 2002 or 2003 (I don’t remember, exactly). I also have been a physician-prescriber of Suboxone in a licensed outpatient mental health and substance abuse program. I have seen how this medication has improved the lives of many people. Therefore, I hope to help people in my local community suffering from opioid addiction.
I am knowledgeable about other addictions as well. If you have a problem with addiction, or are curious about whether Suboxone might be a good medication for you, then please do not hesitate to contact me. I can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and by phone at 1-860-356-2242 (you must dial “1″ even if calling from an area local to my office in Storrs, Connecticut).
My hours are by appointment only. I will be posting additional information about my Storrs practice in addiction medicine in the very near future.
Thanks for visiting.
