Addiction is a complex battle fought on multiple fronts, not just within the physical confines of the body, but also in the social and psychological spheres of life. It is a challenge that Dr. Thomas J. Locke, III, has dedicated himself to addressing by employing an innovative, luxurious approach that respects the dignity and unique needs of each individual embarking on the road to recovery.

Dr. Locke is the Medical Director of the WISE Medical Center – Personal Imaging Enhancement Services Center. Born in Vidalia, Georgia, and raised in SW Atlanta, he completed his undergraduate study at Princeton University before graduating from medical school at Howard University, where he also completed his internship followed by residency training at George Washington University. Dr. Locke is board certified in Internal Medicine, Emergency Medicine, Aesthetics, and a certified Medical Review Officer. Frustrated with the traditional insurance billing business model, he has focused on innovative services that are not covered by insurance where the only loyalties and obligations are to the patient. The pursuit of these interests has led to also being certified in Aesthetics. Ongoing studies in anti-aging medicine and many areas of cosmetic surgery keep him up to date. His practice philosophy centers around all aspects of personal image enhancement services. Having spent most of his medical career in emergency medicine before a brief real estate career, his return to medicine more than 15 years ago has evolved into addiction treatment.

Detox with Dignity, a service of WISE Medical Centers, LLC, is designed for those grappling with the grips of substances like alcohol and drugs. Dr. Locke's method is not about quick fixes but about a comprehensive journey towards healing that factors in motivation, underlying medical issues, and the totality of a person's life experiences.

A notable aspect of Dr. Locke's program is understanding the importance of privacy for individuals undergoing treatment. Detox with Dignity offers a discreet recovery experience that can take place in various locations, from private yachts to hotel suites. This ensures that those who need help can receive it without sacrificing their confidentiality or comfort.

The efficacy of his approach lies in the recognition that addiction is not merely a habit but a condition that deeply affects every aspect of a person's life.

Dr. Locke doesn't shy away from addressing the harsh reality that recovery is a costly endeavor, both emotionally and financially. Yet, he emphasizes the long-term savings and life improvements that successful recovery can bring, not just in terms of finances but in the restoration of relationships and quality of life.

Dr. Locke also acknowledges the practicalities of detox, explaining that there are varied timelines for different substances and advocating for a balanced approach to prevent relapse. His maintenance therapy, especially for drug addiction, is designed to support the patient's lifestyle changes and environmental adjustments, crucial for sustainable sobriety.

Detox with Dignity offers a dignified and upscale path to sobriety that is changing lives and redefining the recovery landscape. Visit for more information.
