Double board certified physician, John Woods, MD, joins The Ranch addiction and mental health treatment center. Nunnelly, TN (PRWEB) June 10, 2014 – The Ranch treatment center in Tennessee welcomes John Woods, MD, as staff physician. Double board certified in internal medicine and addiction medicine, Dr. Woods has been in private practice in internal medicine in Jackson, Tennessee for nearly 20 years. Dr. Woods completed his medical degree at the University of Tennessee College of Medicine in Memphis and four-year residency training at a University of Tennessee affiliate program in Nashville, serving as chief resident during his fourth year. Drawing from his personal experience with recovery, Dr. Woods will bring his expertise and passion to The Ranch’s addiction and eating disorder treatment programs. Dr. Woods is also passionate about treating impaired professionals, including addicted physicians, dentists and lawyers. “Dr. Woods’ clinical expertise complements and completes coverage for our eating disorder and addiction programs,” said Michael Baron, MD, MPH, FASM, Director of Behavioral Health at The Ranch. “Whereas most addiction treatment programs provide one of the three aspects of coverage, at The Ranch we provide all three aspects of care: medical, psychiatric and clinical.” “What excites me about working at The Ranch is not knowing exactly what the day will bring,” said Dr. Woods. “What I do know is that I will be treating people that need help and that can be helped, and that I’ll have the honor of playing a role in their healing.” About The Ranch Since 1999, The Ranch has provided comprehensive therapeutic programs that treat the underlying causes of eating disorders, addictions and other self-defeating behaviors. The Ranch offers innovative therapies to address the multidimensional aspects of the whole person while teaching personal accountability in a safe, nurturing, real-life environment. Located on a working horse ranch in the beautiful rolling hills of Nunnelly, Tennessee, The Ranch offers programs with a variable length of stay, which allows each client to anchor new recovery behaviors needed for lasting change.
