Description

"Addiction: Magical Thinking for a Major Malady." A lecture by Dr. Steve Bergier.

We will be in the upstairs auditorium.

Medical science has made great progress in treating diseases and injuries. For addiction issues, much of the conventional medical treatment for long term recovery is still mired in the spiritual approach as outlined in the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. Let's take a skeptical look at an area of medicine that hasn't progressed much past the era of using leeches for blood letting.

Steve Bergier M.D., is an emergency physician and has spent a large part of his career dealing with the fallout of self destructive behaviors.

Dr. Bergier will lecture and a Q and A will follow right after.

This event is free, but donations are always welcome!


Cost: Free
