The Science of Addiction

“Professionals are successful at every in every other area of their life, except for mental health and addiction.”

Recently, Dr.Dave Cummins, Medical Director at Parkdale Center for Professionals , delivered a motivating talk for the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA) 2020 Virtual Congress. Dr.Cummins’s presentation dives into the Science of Addiction and the risks of substance use disorder, mental health, depression, anxiety, and what you can do to find help.

Professionals are a very interesting population to treat because they are seemingly well put together from their attire to their status in their jobs and personal lives. They are successful and accomplished but stumble and fall in this specific area. Dr.Cummins outlines how we can take care of ourselves and each other, in order to prevent mental health issues and addiction.

Please watch his presentation and reach out to Parkdale Center for support if you’re a professional who is struggling. You are not alone.
