Dr. David E Sternberg has the following 3 specialties
- Addiction Psychiatry
- Addiction Medicine
An addiction medicine specialist is a doctor who treats patients with addictions to substances like drugs and alcohol or, in some cases, behaviors like gambling. Many of these specialists also treat the diseases that stem from these addictions.
These physicians are specially trained to prevent and treat the disease of addiction via psychiatric means, or other fields of medicine like family or internal medicine.
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Saved my life
Self-verified patient of Dr. David E Sternberg - Posted on November 27th, 2017
I saw Dr. Sternberg for 6 years until I moved to California, otherwise I would still be seeing him today. His care and services enabled me to recover from a horrible opioid addiction. I am quite sure I would not be here today if it were not for Dr. Sternberg. I was in a very dark and depressed state, and over the years he helped me change my outlook on my life and start making changes to better myself. During this time I also was encouraged and motivated to work on my health in other ways, and I also lost 125 lbs. I consider Dr. Sternberg a friend, and I would highly recommend him.
Best dr you will ever find!
