Dr. Nourbakhsh is a graduate of Western University of Health Sciences, where he obtained his medical degree. He went on to finish his residency at New York Medical College in anesthesiology, with extensive training in intensive care and acute medical management. He then obtained his certificate in Medical Substance Abuse Detox and has been since serving the community in addiction medicine.
Dr Nourbakhsh has found joy in most fields of medicine throughout his career in helping people overcome diseases affecting different body organs. However, his special interest in addiction medicine arises from the fact that it is in this field of medicine that overcoming one’s disease doesn’t just fix one organ but fixes the entire person, when one is reborn to self and unleashes unlimited potential that is in us humans by default.
As an osteopathic physician, he combines a holistic approach in medicine with the cutting-edge advantages of medical science to deliver a well-tailored and individualized detox for each patient. He is also one of the few physicians in the nation with expertise in ultra-rapid detox, AKA anesthesia assisted opiate detox. Dr. Nourbakhsh is the co-founder of Advanced Opiate Detox Institute, where safe and ultra rapid one-day opiate detox is performed.
Dr. Nourbakhsh’s vision in addiction has shaped his practice in a unique way. We believe that no two addictions are the same and every individual requires a dedicated road plan. Also, medicine should be used as a comforting yet temporary means to cut a patient’s physical dependency, yet a sustainable and fruitful plan is achievable only with a comprehensive plan that includes strengthening one’s faith and factors in psycho-social support.
