Addiction Psychiatrist

Addiction psychiatrists are medical doctors who specialize in the treatment of people who have addictions to substances such as alcohol, medicines, or illegal drugs.

Addiction psychiatrists are not recognized as a separate medical sub-specialty but are usually psychiatrists who are certified through the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
