Pavillon Treatment Center in North Carolina has named Dr. John Roberts to the position of medical director. Having joined the clinical team in 2009 as Pavillon’s addiction psychiatrist, 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 is now in private practice, but remains with Pavillon as a clinical advisor.
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, where he has served nearly 20 years as an assistant professor of psychiatry.
Pavillon is a not-for-profit residential and outpatient treatment center for substance abuse disorders. Its primary residential treatment center is located in Western North Carolina and its full-service outpatient treatment center, as well as its sober living residence, is located in Greenville, S.C.
