The Bergand Group is excited to offer this new array of services provided by a distinguished clinician, now part of the most comprehensive mental health and substance abuse treatment program in Maryland:
- Full time private practice treating substance use, sexual addiction, and gambling
- Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
- Weekly DUI/DWI Alcohol Education Course
In his own words, Dr. Hunt describes his practice as he joins The Bergand Group:
“For 23 years, I was a full-time faculty member in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Maryland, School of Medicine teaching medical students and training residents. I have 20 years’ experience in private practice assisting persons with substance use disorders and behavioral addictions, including sexual addiction and gambling. As a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, I deal with the negative consequences of these compulsions on couples and families, as well as other relationship issues not related to addictions.
I view addictions as illnesses that have their origin in the body emotions and social connections of the afflicted person. The consequences of addictions also occur in each of these three areas and I address each in treatment. Sometimes, people have more than one addiction and/or illness and I deal with these simultaneously.”
