My wife, Christina Bravata, and I launched the CMH Addiction Recovery Program five years ago after I completed my board certification in Addiction Medicine. As a practicing family physician, I was keenly aware that many of my patients were suffering from substance use disorder. Because of this, we sought a way to fill a regional need for addiction recovery services, especially in our rural communities. As the medical director, I am proud of the team of specialists who make the program successful. Our providers include Kelly Watson, FNP-BC, Courtney Brummel, NP-C and Dawnielle Robinson, LPC. With their help, addiction recovery services are available in Bolivar, El Dorado Springs, Humansville, Osceola and Stockton.

At CMH Addiction Recovery, we provide Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) that combines medications, counseling, case management, and peer support to optimize one’s chances of long-term recovery. Once patients reach a year of sustained recovery, they are invited to ring a bell to celebrate their newfound freedom from addiction. Patients may stay in the program for as long as they are finding it beneficial to their recovery. If you or a loved one are struggling with substance or behavioral addiction, we’re here to help.
