Dr. Suma Singh, Los Gatos Health and Wellness’ doctor and owner was closely involved in developing the recent 2014 California Society of Addiction Medicine Review Course and American Board of Addiction Medicine Certification Exam Preparation Track, as a specialist physician serving on the conference planning committee. This is one of the country’s premiere medical conferences in the field of addiction medicine. Over 750 medical professionals from all over United States, as well as other countries attended. The conference brought together the pre-eminent leaders in the field of addition to share their expertise, and more importantly, train physicians to use the latest scientific advances to promote recovery in people suffering from addiction.

At the review course, Dr. Singh helped organize the first ever Food and Addiction seminar, a half-day workshop focusing on the scientific advances in understanding the role of addictive behaviors in the obesity epidemic. She helped bring together experts in the fields of brain science, public health, psychiatry, and addiction to teach physicians a different framework for treatment, beyond calorie counting and appetite suppression.

Dr. Singh, Board Certified in Addiction Medicine and with nearly 20 years’ experience in addiction treatment, is one of few experts throughout the country who integrates the latest in medical and scientific advancements in addiction treatment, with nutritional medicine, holistic and natural treatments. She provides an in-depth medical assessment, and then develops a customized, holistic treatment plan in partnership with her patient to promote recovery.

“I use the latest advances in medicine and brain science to treat addiction, and when helpful, incorporate science-based natural supplements, nutritional solutions, and meditation techniques to treat co-occurring symptoms like anxiety, fatigue, nausea, muscle aches, insomnia. Stress is a common trigger for relapse and we address that too in a complimentary way,” said Dr. Singh. “We can use medications like VIVITROL, naltrexone, SUBOXONE, among others, when needed.”

“Dr. Singh has been instrumental in my recovery from alcoholism.  I don’t know how I would be here without her,” said J.E. (age 45), a patient who took advantage of Dr. Singh’s personalized approach to recovery recently.
