About Daniel Smeester, MD

About Dr. Smeester

Certified by the American Board of Emergency Medicine and the American Board of Addiction Medicine, Daniel Smeester, MD, is a dependence and addiction treatment specialist in California’s East Bay. With more than 20 years of experience, Dr. Smeester owns and operates Diablo Valley Drug and Alcohol Services in San Ramon.

Dr. Smeester graduated from Ponce School of Medicine, in Ponce, Puerto Rico, in 1999 before relocating to New York City. He soon completed an emergency medicine internship and residency at New York Medical College. Not only was Dr. Smeester Chief Resident during his final resident year, but he also earned an “Excellence in Emergency Medicine” award and plaque from Academic Emergency Medicine and the “Best Intern” award from New York Medical College.

Passionate about addiction treatment, Dr. Smeester was board certified as an addiction medicine physician in 2014. He has since dedicated his life to fighting drug and alcohol dependence, as well as addiction, at Diablo Valley Drug and Alcohol Services, which earned its Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) in 2016.

As a compassionate addiction specialist, Dr. Smeester understands that those struggling with addiction and substance abuse aren’t always treated with the dignity they deserve. That’s why he’s carefully built an environment where his patients can feel comfortable, respected, and valued.

Diablo Valley Drug and Alcohol Services is an outpatient facility, meaning patients can continue working, going to school, and participating in their day-to-day routine while receiving treatment. As a longtime physician, Dr. Smeester has seen how inpatient treatment may disrupt patients’ lives and are thus unable to be treated. 

To avoid these disruptions and promote a healthy recovery, he and his team offer a number of helpful outpatient services and evidence-based treatments, including medication-assisted treatment (MAT), therapy, family counseling, detox services, and more. If hospitalized treatment is necessary or desired, Dr. Smeester’s referral can help to prioritize your admission. If hospital care is needed, he can see you in consultation at Stanford ValleyCare Hospital in Pleasanton, near the San Ramon offices.
