Fairbanks welcomes back Dr. Dennis K. Rhyne to its staff. He returns to Fairbanks to serve as a psychiatrist and addictionologist, which helps the organization treat more individuals with co-occurring disorders as well as provide more staffing in the medical office.
Co-occurring disorders are the coexistence of both a mental health and substance use disorder.
Previously Rhyne served as Fairbanks’ chief of psychiatric services and assistant medical director from 1999 to 2015. After that he worked in addictions and general psychiatry for Centerstone Behavioral Health in Bradenton, Fla., and has also served as a flight surgeon for the Indiana Air National Guard and a psychiatric consultant for the Indianapolis Colts.
Rhyne attended medical school at the University of Wisconsin and completed his psychiatric residency at the University of California. He has certification from the American Board of Psychiatry and is a certified Suboxone provider.
