Neal Taub, MD
Dr. Taub provides both medical treatments for addiction as well as pain medicine. Dr. Taub recognized a need in Charlotte for addiction treatment plans that address the medical / biological components of addiction as well as providing quality counseling. He knew that there were and are medical treatments that can greatly improve the success of behavioral therapy by reducing withdrawal symptoms and reducing cravings, but he also observed that it was difficult for patients in the metropolitan Charlotte region to find doctors who would provide these high-quality, comprehensive treatment plans. Therefore, Dr. Taub turned his private pain medicine practice into The Taub Group, so that he could make quality, comprehensive addiction treatment more accessible for people in our region. Dr. Taub is currently board-eligible with the American Board of Addiction Medicine.
Dr. Taub graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of California - San Diego. He received his medical degree in 1987 from Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, TX.
Dr. Taub has long served as a respected member of the medical community. He has been invited to publish and/or present his work on more than 15 occasions at meetings such as the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine and the Association of Academic Physiatrists.
In addition to serving as the Medical Director for CMC - Mercy Rehabilitation Center from 1992 to 2008, Dr. Taub has worked as a Medical Director at Meadowhaven Rehab and Specialty Care Center and as the Medical Director for American Transitional Care.
His honors and distinctions include the 1987 award of P/SL Foundation Grant for medical research and the 1987 Lewis Leavitt Award for Physical Medicine Rehabilitation. Dr. Taub is certified by the American Board of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation.
James M. Wylie, MEd, LPC
A graduate of Winthrop University, Jim has specialized in substance abuse counseling for more than twenty years. He is a North Carolina Licensed Professional Counselor. While being well-versed in numerous therapeutic approaches, James tends to prefer what is called the Person-Centered Approach for addiction counseling.
"I enjoy a casual approach to counseling. Meaning it's all about the client once they enter the session, their comfort and feelings are primary. Your problems are very serious to you and they will be treated in that manner. The client is the number one priority in this relationship."
