Rich Entel, MD

Rich Entel MD, a physician with 31 years of medical experience, is board certified in both Family Medicine and Addiction Medicine.  Dr. Entel believes in the healing power of the integration of well-chosen medication with the broad spectrum of individual and group activities and services that a program such as Grace Street Services provides.  His work is dedicated every day to the goal of respecting and collaborating honestly with his patients.  In his practice he has witnessed how this open approach is integral to freeing an individual to make deep and lifesaving changes made more urgent in the current surge of drug related deaths.

Dr. Entel volunteers as a member of the circle of directors of Maine Inside Out, a program which initiates dialogue, develops leadership, and builds community across boundaries with collaborative original theater, inside and outside correctional facilities.

He is a dedicated visual artist and musician.  Most recently he had a show of sculptures which travelled the east coast of the US and currently collaborates as a musician with a spoken-word artist.
