Addiction medicine and addiction psychiatry in America: The impact of physicians in recovery on the medical treatment of addiction

Addiction medicine and addiction psychiatry in America: The impact of physicians in recovery on the medical treatment of addiction

Contemporary Drug Problems 34(1): 111-135

Two distinct medical disciplines treat addiction in the United States: Addiction medicine and addiction psychiatry. This article argues that physicians recovering from alcoholism or drug abuse played a key role in creating the field of addiction medicine, and that the development of addiction medicine inadvertently contributed to the formation of addiction psychiatry. Addiction medicine's undercurrent of recovery, specifically questions about the knowledge that recovering physicians call on to treat addiction, remains central to an ongoing professional conflict between addiction medicine and addiction psychiatry.
