Roberts named new medical director for Pavillon Treatment Center
Published 4:47 pm Wednesday, February 8, 2012
Dr. John Roberts has accepted the position of medical director for Pavillon Treatment Center in North Carolina.
Having joined the clinical team in 2009 as Pavillon’s addiction psychiatrist, one of only a handful in the region, Dr. Roberts has become thoroughly familiar with the staff and the operation of Pavillon’s clinical and medical program.
Thus the transition to medical director was a natural fit, said Anne Vance, CEO for Pavillon. Roberts replaces Dr. Susan Holman, who is now in private practice but remains with Pavillon as a clinical advisor.
Dr. Roberts is board-certified in psychiatry, neurology and addiction medicine. He received his doctor of medicine from Louisiana State University and completed his psychiatric residency, as well as fellowships in substance abuse and anxiety disorders, at the Medical University of South Carolina.
He has nearly 20 years of experience serving as an assistant professor of psychiatry at the Medical University of South Carolina.
Pavillon is a not-for-profit residential and outpatient treatment center for substance abuse disorders. Its primary residential treatment center is located in Polk County and its full-service outpatient treatment center, as well as its sober living residence, is located in Greenville, S.C.
