David Stern


Dr. David Stern is a trained internist and addictionologist with 30 years working on improving the overall health of patients. His motivation for working in the field of substance/alcohol use disorders and behavioral health comes from experiences in attempting to secure care for his younger son Alan who had a mental health and substance use problem. Alan passed in 2008. This family tragedy changed the trajectory of Dr. Stern’s career and led to his dedication to providing holistic, evidence-based and empathetic care to clients with mental health, substance/alcohol use disorders. Dr. Stern strives to provide the kind of care that he wished to secure for Alan. His goal is to “change the outcome” for his patients. He created the Center for Addiction Science at the University of Tennessee and guided it to receive the center-of-excellence designation from the American Board of Addiction Medicine.
