Addiction doesn’t discriminate. In our society, we all have some connection to this epidemic — either through personal experience, a family member, a colleague, a friend, or an acquaintance.
In 2017, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services determined that a public health emergency exists nationwide. Practicing as a vascular surgeon for the past 25 years, Dr. John W. Kitzmiller has extensive experience treating critical illness, as well as an understanding of the immense impact such challenges have on patients and their families. As a physician with chronic pain, coupled with personal addiction experience, Dr. Kitzmiller has developed expertise in the successful management of severe pain, addiction, and associated issues including depression, anxiety, and shame.
Bald Mountain Behavioral Medicine offers treatment for individuals as well as couples and families affected by addiction. Dr. Kitzmiller and the experienced practitioners at Bald Mountain Behavioral Medicine are licensed to prescribe buprenorphine (Suboxone) and, therefore, are able to manage patients’ long-term care and are qualified to treat individuals with opiate addiction through medication-assisted treatment (MAT).
