John Barbuto MD
Dr. Barbuto has decades of experience as a board-certified neurologist working particularly with pain and other difficult-to-diagnose conditions. Drawing on this background, and with additional board certification in addiction, Dr. Barbuto brings new views to addiction treatment. With focus on brain mechanisms and causes of addiction, Dr. Barbuto helps patients and families understand and implement personalized approaches to addiction treatment. Treatments can become more focused on correcting causes rather than the often-ineffective symptom focus, “Just say ‘No”. In addition, drawing again on neurological background, Dr. Barbuto can address pain with addiction. Overall, Dr. Barbuto’s treatment goal is to improve function in life at biological, psychological and social levels. Dr. Barbuto works with a treatment team focused on tracking outcome so that treatment approaches can be adapted as necessary to produce improved function.
