Substance Use Disorder/ Addiction

  • Medication

    Throughout America, individuals, families, and clinicians are struggling to make treatment available to those who need it.

  • Addiction

    If you tuned into cable news during the last month you may have seen two more politicians engulfed in scandal. Toronto Mayor Rob Ford was caught smoking crack and Congressman Trey Radel (R-FL) was caught buying cocaine. The recent events have sparked extensive coverage in the media, political discussions and ample material for comedians. It seems that politicians behaving badly creates a place for society to wrestle with views on addiction and individual responsibility.
