Dr. Shawn M. Hamm
Addiction Trained Physician
Dr. Shawn Hamm is the first fellowship-trained, addiction medicine boarded physician in the State of Tennessee. His residency training was in family medicine (he is also boarded in family medicine), providing him with a sound background in physical health problems of patients of all ages.
Dr. Hamm became dedicated to addiction medicine through seeing the impact of SUD and Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) on close friends, and from experiencing the positive impact that a skilled physician could have on patients with addiction. He discovered that the trajectory of a human life can be turned around as the person regains control of her/his life to become a positively contributing member of society.
Dr. Hamm is a skilled clinician and dedicated to developing the most effective system of care for patients with SUD/AUD. He is also business-oriented and earned an MBA before entering medical school.
