Dr. Hunt also has his own private practice, which he describes here:

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 training residents. I have 20 years’ experience in private practice assisting persons with substance use disorders behavioral addictions, including sexual addiction gambling. As a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist, I deal with the negative consequences of these compulsions on couples families, as well as other relationship issues not related to addictions.
I view addictions as illnesses that have their origin in the body emotions social connections of the afflicted person. The consequences of addictions also occur in each of these three areas  I address each in treatment. Sometimes, people have more than one addiction  I deal with these simultaneously.
You can schedule an appointment with Dr. Hunt by calling our office at 410-853-7691
