Providing addiction medicine in a warm and caring environment 

The Master Center for Addiction Medicine is built on love. Our patients feel it when they walk in the door. We are dedicated to helping anyone who suffers from the treatable, chronic medical disease of addiction as they work to find freedom and joy in their lives again. Our headquarters serving Central Virginia are located in Greater Richmond in an easily accessible and welcoming office in Glen Allen. In addition, our growing practice now serves Virginia’s Middle Peninsula region with the second location in Gloucester, Virginia, and we just opened a third location in the Tidewater region of Hampton, Virginia. We rely on a team of highly trained, multidisciplinary professionals who are compassionate and skilled at outlining a step-by-step plan for patients to achieve success.
