ABPM Board Certified Addiction Specialist

Dr. Mark F. Towns, M.D, FASM, is a highly experienced and double-board certified Addiction Fellow who has dedicated his career to helping individuals struggling with addiction. He holds degrees from the University of Michigan Medical School, a Harvard Clinical Fellowship, and UC Berkeley. Dr. Towns' compassionate and individualized approach to treatment has helped many clients achieve lasting success in their recovery.
In addition to being a specialist in addiction treatment, Dr. Towns provides professional consults for registered nurses (RNs) and Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs), as well as expert witness services and assessments for early evaluation for termination of probation for healthcare professionals.

Dr. Towns offers specialized addiction consultations, which include comprehensive mental and physical evaluations for health professionals undergoing disciplinary actions with the Board of Registered Nursing and California Emergency Medical Services Authority facing disciplinary action. These detailed consultations cater to nurses, emergency medical technicians, and other healthcare professionals seeking expert guidance and support during challenging times.
The process culminates in an extensive report, meticulously prepared by Dr. Towns, that provides a thorough assessment of the individual's condition. This report is instrumental for professionals navigating disciplinary proceedings, offering valuable insights and recommendations.

Dr. Towns accepts various forms of payment for his consultations, including cash and credit, catering to a diverse range of clients seeking his expertise and care.

He is a primary care physician with extensive outpatient experience in his private medical practice and other clinics, providing internal medicine and limited pain management with health maintenance.
At Towns Health Services, Dr. Towns and his team work together to provide the highest standard of care to each client. Their belief in personalized care and attention helps them provide clients with exceptional treatment plans that meet their unique needs and circumstances. As the chief administrator for THS, Dr. Towns has developed a unique addiction program that is both evidence-based and spiritual-based. He believes in Medication-Assisted Therapy (MAT) for harm reduction and patient benefit. Dr. Towns' passion for addiction treatment has led him to donate extensive personal funds, and time to the development of addiction programs owned by Towns Health Services Inc., so that they may better serve the community.
