This blog is intended to serve as a forum for health care professionals wishing to discuss issues related to addiction, treatment and recovery within the house of medicine. It is hoped that this will become not only a source of information but inspiration as well. The applicable audience should include but is not limited to MD’s, DO’s, FNP’s, PA’s, DDS’s and nurses. Troubled physicians and other healthcare professionals should know that there is hope and help available to them, not just misery and despair. Those in recovery already know that with every day spent in sobriety, things get better and this is the pathway to miraculous transformation. Their experiences, strengths and hopes need to be shared. The non-medical public could also gain insight from what is posted here. Attitudes abound on this topic – good and bad, constructive and destructive, aggravating and inspirational. Let us explore them here, together.
