Michael M. Miller, MD, FASAM, FAPA, medical director of the Herrington Recovery Center, was selected to receive Addiction Professional’s 2011 Outstanding Clinician Award.

In addition to his active role as an advocate for addiction medicine, Dr. Miller  is an outstanding clinician. This is not news to the patients and families who have found treatment at Rogers’ Herrington Recovery Center. Dr. Miller is very much involved in the ongoing treatment of Herrington’s patients.   the article at Addiction Professional:(link is external)

“I want to know who the people are in [patients'] lives,” Miller says. “In this field you have people estranged  their family of origin, people who have not a lot of friends and whose network is constructed with other active addicts. … I try to do my initial interviews with the family present.”

You can read the article online(link is external), and an in-depth profile of Dr. Miller appears in the print version of the July-Aug. edition of Addiction Professional, which will be distributed at the National Conference on Addiction Disorders in September.

The Herrington Recovery Center at Rogers Memorial Hospital provides comprehensive, confidential treatment for substance-use disorders in a modern and comfortable environment.
