Better than pain, but your better off in an academic residency.

Generally you should avoid AOA psychiatry if you want to get a fellowship. Though if I remember correctly addiction medicine is a relatively uncompetitive field, though addiction psychiatry may be more medium competitiveness.

How unrealistic is acceptance to a fellowship in addiction medicine after a DO-residency in psychiatry?
Addiction Psychiatry is probably more appropriate for a Psychiatrist.
