Dr. Maria Freeman specializes in Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) at Algone as part of the Addiction Therapy center. Her team partners with the MatSu Opioid Task Force and works with the community to fight the addiction epidemic in Alaska.
Dr. Freeman was born and raised in South Wales, Great Britain. She later moved to New York City where she began her academic studies and received degrees from:
- City College of New York: Undergraduate studies
- Long Island University: Postgraduate studies
- Universidad Autonoma de Guadalajara School of Medicine: Medical Doctorate
Because Dr. Freeman also practices family medicine at Family Medicine of Alaska, her community ties are strong and diverse. Her love for her patients shines through at Algone, where she initiated and sustained the Addiction Therapy center for alcohol and opioid dependence. Dr. Freeman’s team works to help improve quality of life for their patients by establishing a collaborative partnership and meaningful relationship.
Dr. Freeman enjoys the camaraderie and shared vision at Algone. She is driven to assist those in need and welcomes them with understanding and compassion.
Recently, Dr. Freeman started Summit Recovery Group - a group counseling program for her patients. She volunteers in the Crusade for Christ Ministries and Galena Young Life Support Committee, and also teaches Sunday school. And when she isn't out working on her community, she enjoys family outings with her grandchildren.
