Drug Use During Brain Development: The Wrong Insult At The Wrong Time
When a young person drinks or does drugs during adolescence, it can lead to problems with brain development that may last a lifetime.
At Addiction Center, we strive to provide the most accurate and thorough information on substance use disorders and mental health disorders. Our writers conduct comprehensive research on every topic, and work with addiction counselors and therapists to create a well-rounded source of information for our readers. In an effort to continue providing the best and most accurate information, Addiction Center has partnered with Dr. Ashish Bhatt, MD, MRO, a leading physician, addiction medicine specialist, and psychiatrist.
Throughout his career, Dr. Bhatt has been a leader in substance abuse treatment programs, including administrative and medical directorship positions for inpatient and outpatient programs, detox units, and inpatient residential dual-diagnosis facilities. He is a Board Certified Diplomate of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology in both Adult and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, a Certified Medical Review Officer, and is Board Certified in Addiction Medicine. He has served as the Chief Medical Officer for regional and national behavioral health companies and worked to develop public and private substance abuse and dual diagnosis facilities.
Dr. Bhatt’s professional experience is not the only reason Addiction Center is excited to announce our partnership. One of the mutual goals of Dr. Bhatt and the information we provide at Addiction Center is to break down the stigma and stereotypes surrounding mental health disorders and addiction. Being a voice for individuals and their families who are struggling with substance abuse or mental health is a primary objective. Sometimes individuals are misdiagnosed, and their treatment needs are not met appropriately. Dr. Bhatt’s approach includes looking at each patient with a fresh assessment, so that a treatment plan can be formulated that does not solely lean on a previous diagnosis. Addiction and mental health treatment is not a one size fits all process, which is why Addiction Center works to provide an inclusive array of information for a variety of individuals and their needs.
With Dr. Ashish Bhatt serving as our Medical Director, Addiction Center will be able to produce first-rate and reliable content on the topics of mental health and substance use disorders. Readers will be able to access blogs authored by Dr. Bhatt that offer unique and professional information on relevant subjects, such as the construction of addiction. This partnership will create the best online resource for those looking for precise and medically reviewed information on addiction and recovery.
