PERU — The medical director of the Illinois Valley Community Hospital Emergency Department is now board-certified in addiction medicine.

Dr. Paul Bonucci received the certification from the American Board of Preventive Medicine (ABPM) in January. He is also certified by the American Board of Emergency Medicine.

The ABPM said addiction medicine is concerned with the prevention, evaluation, diagnosis, treatment and recovery of persons with the disease of addiction, of those with substance-related health conditions, and of people who show unhealthy use of substances including nicotine, alcohol, prescription medications and other licit and illicit drugs.

A resident of Princeton, Dr. Bonucci has been medical director of the IVCH Emergency Department since 2008.
