Our Physician Dr. Steven J Locnikar

Steven J Locnikar, DO., has almost 20 years of experience in addiction medicine and is a Board Certified Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon. He also has been Board Certified in Otolaryngology. Dr. Steven Locnikar was one of the most successful reconstructive and cosmetic surgeons in the state of Arizona throughout the 1990s into early 2000. However, he developed a substance addiction that ultimately consumed his personal and professional life during that time.

Ironically, after successfully completing extensive inpatient drug and alcohol treatment, he returned to the practice of medicine and chose to dedicate the remainder of his personal and professional life to the treatment of others suffering from similar addictions.

This unique blend of personal experience and extensive medical/surgical knowledge has allowed him to provide his patients with the best in cutting-edge medical addiction treatment in a compassionate and empathetic environment which is immediately evident upon his first encounter.

He serves as Medical Director of several substance abuse treatment centers and hospitals in Arizona: Inpatient, Outpatient, Residential, Detoxification, Partial Hospitalization, and Intensive Outpatient Hospitalization. He has a vast amount of experience in all transition phases of the treatment process.

Dr. Steven Locnikar is renowned for providing advanced detoxification from all substances of abuse or dependence. He profoundly understands the detoxification process (both professional and personal) and finds the least painful and safest manner to detox his patients in a compassionate environment.
