Jenkins, M.D. has extensive experience in the field of addiction medicine and was one of the first on the Gulf Coast to adapt a treatment environment. Staying on the pulse of modern technology, the practice also has the benefit of telemedicine platform so that you have the ability to visit with the psychiatrist over secure, HIPAA-compliant video conferencing.

We have now seen the world of dangers in prescription pain medication and how it has led to the ever-growing opioid crisis. We will work together to get a treatment plan that works best for the patient on the road to recovery. Treatment takes time and we believe in the use of buprenorphine & naloxone as an effective pharmaceutical combination for opioid addiction in combination with consistent monitoring and maintenance.
We offer a broad range of psychiatric experience including evaluation and if applicable, development of a pharmacological treatment plan. General adolescent and adult psychiatry includes treatment of post traumatic stress disorder, issues with community and society, eating disorders, schizophrenia, personality & mood disorders.
With a world of constant distractions, it is estimated that more than 8 million adults in the US struggle with feeling symptoms of attention deficit disorder. Our practice seeks to aide in the prevention of the disturbance caused by untreated symptoms that can impact many areas of your life including your work, personal and professional relationships, your mental and physical health and your financial stability.
