Dr. Roland Reeves named director of addiction services at Sacred Heart Hospital

Dr. Roland Reeves, MD, FACS, ASAM has been named the director of addiction services for Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast. Reeves, MD is medical director of Destin Recovery Addiction Treatment Center and the South Walton Medical Center.

Reeves, MD treats addiction as a chronic disease; most treatment centers typically address it as an acute condition and do not include the necessary long term disease management.

According to Reeves, every treatment should include medical treatment by a hands-on addiction doctor combined with cognitive therapy and self-help.

“This complex disease involves changes in the structure and function of the brain. This requires not only therapists and peer groups, but the ongoing involvement of a physician,” said Reeves.
