About Scott A Teitelbaum

Scott Teitelbaum, M.D., is the Pottash Professor in Psychiatry and Neuroscience at the University of Florida’s College of Medicine, where he serves as Vice Chair of the Department of Psychiatry, Chief of the Division of Addiction Medicine, Medical Director of the UF Health Florida Recovery Center, and Fellowship Director of UF’s American Board of Preventative Medicine (ABPM) – Addiction fellowship.

Originally trained and board-certified as a pediatrician, Dr. Teitelbaum later completed fellowships in addiction medicine and child psychiatry at the University of Florida. Dr. Teitelbaum became medical director of the Florida Recovery Center in 2002, and since then has been involved in the evaluation and/or treatment of more than 4,000 healthcare providers and other professionals from across the country. Through his efforts, the Florida Recovery Center has led the way nationally with its evidence-based treatment of the disease of addiction.

Dr. Teitelbaum developed one of the first-ever accredited fellowships in addiction medicine. His program now has trained more addiction-medicine fellows than any other program nationwide. In 2016, Dr. Teitelbaum was awarded the Pottash Endowment, allowing for the creation of a research initiative that’s focused on addiction medicine and the fight toward recovery. He has been honored on multiple occasions with the Exemplary Teacher Award for his guidance of medical students.

Dr. Teitelbaum has received multiple awards and honors, including in January 2018, the American Society of Addiction Medicine named Dr. Teitelbaum winner of its Prestigious Annual Award in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the field.

A national expert who has been consulted by the White House Office of National Drug Control and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, Dr. Teitelbaum is passionate about reducing stigma and advancing treatment for those suffering from the disease of addiction.
