Rob Ashby, M.D. FASAM

Dr. Ashby is board-certified in both addiction and pain management and has recently reopened an office in Scottsdale. He has extensive experience in managing addiction, including addiction complicated by chronic pain- using integrative, multi-modal treatment plans including several of the following: medication management, outpatient detoxification/medication tapering, medication assisted treatment (MAT) motivational interviewing, cognitive restructuring, mindfulness, and guided visualizations.

It is Dr. Ashby's philosophy that recovery from addiction requires a long term approach. He provides education to his patients, emphasizing that it takes time for the brain to change and ingrain new ways of coping and living. Dr. Ashby's approach with long-term, low intensity outpatient treatment is ideal for many patients who are still employed and have a good support system. It is less expensive, allows people to continue to work or go to school and learn to deal with life in their native environment. Dr. Ashby believes that most people do not need inpatient treatment.
