Douglas J. Davies, MD, ASAM

Medical Director

Dr. Davies is fellowship trained in Addiction Medicine and certified by The American Board of Addiction Medicine. He maintains appointments at Florida State University where he regularly lectures and mentors medical students, patients and family members on topics that he is passionate about. These topics include healing from tobacco addiction and the physical, emotional and spiritual underpinnings of the disease we call addiction. He serves full time as the medical director of The Refuge, leads our medical staff, and offers a no judgment, no pressure healing energy to all who cross his path. Dr. Davies is fully integrated as a key member of an exceptional team of nurses, consultant physicians and therapists. Through personal experience, professional training, elder mentoring and a clear understanding that at the core we are all connected, he has developed an awareness of how to engage patients suffering from trauma and addiction and welcome them into the light of recovery.
