    Eduardo Javier, MD, is Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Addiction Medicine. He is currently a hospitalist physician at Eisenhower Health and serves as the Program Director for Eisenhower Health’s fellowship program in Addiction Medicine.

    After receiving his medical degree in the Philippines, Dr. Javier completed a residency program in internal medicine from St. John’s Episcopal Hospital in New York. After working for several years as a hospitalist, Dr. Javier became interested in addition medicine and completed a fellowship program in this specialty at Loma Linda University Medical Center and the Betty Ford Center, a part of the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation.

    Dr. Javier became interested in becoming a physician as a young boy. “My school was across the street from a hospital, and I was impressed with the doctors coming and going,” states Dr. Javier. “Fortunately, I love medicine and am ever grateful for pursuing this profession.” 

    After completing his residency in internal medicine, Dr. Javier knew that he wanted to focus on acute patient care in a hospital setting. As a hospitalist at Eisenhower Health – which is in close proximity to the Betty Ford Center, he was intrigued with patients that were admitted through the emergency room for addiction issues. “It was the height of the opioid epidemic in 2010, and I saw a patient after patient addicted to opioids, and other drugs. I became curious as to why some patients became addicted and others didn’t. I started working at the Betty Ford Center, which led to my participating in a fellowship program in Addiction Medicine,” adds Dr. Javier. 

    In reflecting on the unique nature of working with addiction patients, Dr. Javier states, “There is often a huge lack of continuity of care, or fragmented care concerning these patients. No one is overseeing the patients care, they are often stigmatized, and the medical issues associated with addiction is often not understood. Eisenhower Addiction Medicine Program was created to provide a bridge to the gap in the care for these patients.”
