Chris Stewart, M.D., CGP, DFAPA

 Dr. Chris Stewart received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Chemistry (cum laude) in 1993 from Georgetown College.  He received his Medical Degree in 1997 from the University of Louisville.  UofL is also where he completed his General Psychiatry Residency (2001) and his Fellowship in Addiction Psychiatry (2005).  Dr. Stewart currently holds the rank of Associate Professor with the University of Louisville, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences.

Dr. Stewart is the training director of the Addiction Psychiatry Residency Training Program at the University of Louisville and is the Director of the Addictions Program at the UofL Physicians Outpatient Center.  He is board certified by the American Board of Psychiatry & Neurology (Psychosomatic Medicine), American Board of Psychiatry & Neurology (Addiction Psychiatry), and the American Board of Psychiatry & Neurology (General Psychiatry).  He is also a certified group psychotherapist with the International Registry of Group Psychotherapy. 

Dr. Stewart's entire career has been dedicated to the treatment of addiction, involving teaching, research, clinical work, and social advocacy.  His research on addiction primarily involves the use of neurofeedback and neuroelectrophysiology in better understanding the psychophysiology of addiction, in order to develop innovative treatments that break out of the psychopharmacological paradigm which dominates psychiatry and the medical field.  He is largely informed by modern attachment theory and believes that addiction is best treated in the group setting.  Still, he does not support a dogmatic approach to addiction treatment, and considers the modern treatment of addiction as a potential vehicle for social justice.   

Dr. Stewart is currently taking new patients.  Please call the clinic at 502-588-4450 to schedule an appointment.
