An addiction medicine physician is a doctor who specializes in addiction medicine, a branch of medicine concerned with the medical treatment of addiction.  Drugs, alcohol and gambling addiction are just a few addictions treated.   The majority of addiction medicine physicians are psychiatrists.  Many patients are treated within addiction clinics.  When an addiction medicine physician's level of medical care, skill or treatment falls below the standard of care and inflicts serious injury or death to a patient, medical malpractice may have occurred.  Unfortunately, even the best addiction medicine physicians, doctors or clinics can commit errors and mistakes that may result in serious injuries or wrongful death.
