Medical Staff

Stephen Pannel, DO, ABPN, ABAM

Medical Director

Dr. Pannel oversees Oxford Treatment Center’s withdrawal management program and provides treatment for drug and alcohol addiction and co-occurring disorders. A graduate of the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences, he completed a residency in psychiatry at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, as well as a fellowship in child and adolescent psychiatry at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Dr. Pannel is certified by the American Board of Addiction Medicine (ABAM). He is also board-certified in adult psychiatry and specializes in dual-diagnosis conditions. 

Over the course of his career, Stephen has seen the positive impact of treatment on young adults, stating that “for the most part, once [they] get into treatment, they begin to understand the scope of their problem—how it has affected those around them and how it will destroy their lives if they continue. Their motivation can drastically change, and they can get a lot out of treatment.”
