I Cannot Provide Medical Advice by Email
Many people have written asking for advice for themselves or a loved one. I regret to say that for obvious medical and ethical reasons I cannot provide medical advice through this website. I also cannot provide medical advice by phone or by email. This site contains general medical information and is not tailored to the needs of a specific individual. I can only provide medical advice to patients who are part of my medical practice.
If you have any medical questions I suggest you ask your doctor, or find an addiction specialist through the American or Canadian Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM or CSAM).

Tell Your Story
If you are in recovery or if you know someone in recovery, I am interested in hearing your story. I am writing a new book on recovery and relapse prevention that will include information for the family.
I hope to include some of your insightful and instructive stories in the book. Anonymity is the cornerstone of recovery, and I will change any identifying characteristics to protect your privacy. I may also change some of the wording to adapt the story to the book.
Please send your story to stories @ stevenmelemis dot com and perhaps your story might help someone down the road.
