Dr. Soroya Bacchus, MD

I’m board certified in Addiction Medicine and Psychiatry and believe “dual diagnosis” is at the heart of substance use disorders. Focusing on mental health and self-medicating drug use just plain makes sense. My approach? I like to keep things simple, efficient and most of all effective. I find this works with patients I serve.

I had a dream about naming our office “Calming Goat Addiction Medicine Group”. It stuck and I still to this day don’t know why I dreamt this.

Continuing, I have lived in California most of my life and did my undergrad at UC Irvine and medical school at Howard University in Washington DC. It was here that I became involved in the crack cocaine epidemic in the late ‘80’s that affected adults and neonates with premature death. I still feel today deeply impacted by the suffering I witnessed and felt then.

From there, I finished my residency and fellowship at UCLA Neuropsychiatric Institute in psychiatry and geriatric psychiatry. I am board certified in:

  • Psychiatry
  • Geriatric Psychiatry
  • Psychosomatic Medicine
  • Addiction Medicine.

My interests include science fiction reads that suggest mind, identity and spiritual capabilities waiting to be realized. 

At Calming Goat let me help you reboot your mind and health for a drug free reality.
