Hello, I’m Jason Gaurkee, SAC, a board-certified, substance abuse counselor with Affinity Medical Group’s behavioral health department. I provide AODA therapy to patients struggling with various substance abuse disorders and mental health issues. I have a special interest in opioid maintenance treatment. I believe that establishing trust and rapport with patients, their families and loved ones is of particular importance to the therapeutic relationship. I fully invest in my patient’s ability to reach treatment goals by identifying the underlying causes of addiction with evidence-based therapies.
When I’m not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my family, recreational and competitive fishing, listening to alternative, grunge and classic rock, continuing my education and working with addiction issues within our community.
