Richard Montgomery


Since joining Schick Shadel Hospital in 2017, Dr. Montgomery has discovered that aversion therapy is a remarkably successful treatment modality for a variety of types of substance use disorders. He believes his role as a psychiatrist is to join his patients on their life journey for a time, relieving their symptoms when possible, reflecting their own truth when evident and empowering them to make changes that are often the only pathway to complete healing and growth.

In 1999, Dr. Montgomery received his medical doctorate from the Medical University of South Carolina College of Medicine. From 1999 to 2003 he completed internship and psychiatry residency training at the University of California-Davis School of Medicine. In 2004, he completed a fellowship in geriatric psychiatry at Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic of the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.
