“Substance Use Disorders & Working Professionals”
Westlake Village Inn November 2022
PCI partnered with the Meadows Malibu for an innovative presentation on addiction in working professionals. Our medical director, Dr. Joshua Diamond discussed the history of addiction, and how laws, medical practice, and social stigma created much of the infrastructure around substance use we see today during his presentation, “Substance Use Disorders among the Upper Middle Class: An unexpectedly underserved population.” In Dr. Michel Sucher’s presentation, “Impaired Health Professionals: Diagnosis, Treatment, Reentry,” he shares several case studies and personal experiences with health professionals unique battles with substance use and how it can be treated. Attendees earned continued education (CE) credits for attending the presentation.
