We are pleased to announce that Dr. Michael Simison has accepted the position of ASAC’s Medical Director.
Dr. Simison is no stranger to ASAC. Since 2009, he has been evaluating and providing psychiatric treatment to clients in ASAC’s adult residential treatment program. In July of this year, he became the agency’s interim Medical Director.
Dr. Simison is certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology as well as the American Board of Family Medicine. Earlier this year he was awarded fellow status by the American Psychiatric Association. We are happy to announce that this month Dr. Simison also received certification by the American Board of Addiction Medicine. This is the highest level of certification a physician can obtain in this field.
We are very fortunate to have Dr. Simison as our Medical Director. His background in psychiatry, family medicine, and addiction medicine is vitally important to the clients we serve. In addition to being ASAC’s Medical Director, Dr. Simison also has his own psychiatric clinic in Mount Vernon.
