About

Dr. El-Asyouty believes it’s important to not confuse the person with their illness. Alcoholism, substance abuse and chemical dependency are all diseases that affect the nervous system resulting in a loss of control over the use of substances. Dr. El-Asyouty is aware of the need to be very careful about using addictive medications in patients who are in recovery from addiction. Additionally, it is also important to recognize that people who are in recovery from depression and anxiety usually also require a change in the way that the individual processes feeling information, which Dr. El-Asyouty provides in a training program.
Dr. El-Asyouty treats patients with Psychiatric, Chemical Dependency and Chronic Pain conditions. Dr El Asyouty is also licensed to prescribe Suboxone and is able to administer Vivitrol.
Dr. El Asyouty was a winner of the Patients' Choice Award in 2008, 2013 and 2015 and is very involved in the community, and has media appearances to talk about awareness concerning drug use among adolescents. Patients of Dr. El Asyouty are treated with respect and compassion, and those with chemical dependency conditions are treated from a medical stand.
