5 Year Blog Anniversary


I never imagined my blog would be going strong after five years. Initially, I started it to promote I book that a wrote. The book did OK, but the blog has been so much more interesting and rewarding. I hope I’ve helped educate my readers, because they surely have educated me. I have a much better idea what’s going on out there in “addiction land.” My patients educate me about local trends, but blog commenters give a more universal view.

Thanks for reading and let’s continue our education of each other.

    Thank you for writing this blog, most doctors do not take the time to share their experience and knowledge. You really have proven how much passion you have to help your patients and people like myself who are in recovery. If only more doctors realized that educating patients is a big part of successful treatment .
    Thanks for all of your blogs.
