- 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.

I would not recommend Dr Swenson to anyone. I went to him for substance abuse issues. He is extremely uncaring and would not give me any assurance has to what I was going through (symptoms, what to expectduring my recovery..) I asked him to explain to me the reasons why I was experiencing such bad anxiety, he shrugged his shoulders and told me that I should be hospitalized if I thought my anxiety was so bad. He also never recommended medications to help with my anxiety or sleep problems. Every medication he prescribed I had to research and tell ask him to prescribe it for me. I feel very sorry for anyone who has to deal with him as a doctor. He also seemed to not know very much about the drug I was addicted to.
