What a day. The California Society of Addiction Medicine Conference was today and you know I was there. Today was a day of humility for me. I had the opportunity to go to the Amen Clinics in Newport Beach where I participated in a small focus group on brain healthy addiction treatment. This would have been great in and of itself, but what really made it spectacular for me was that Dr. Daniel Amen was a part of the group as was Dr. David Smith, former president of the American Society of Addiction Medicine, and Founder of the Haight Ashbury Free Medical Clinic. I love being challenged and being in a focus group with these two men present was something else. I really experienced a lot of gratitude for the opportunities Newport Academy has afforded me. I never would have imagined I would have been sitting there with two legends of my industry like these men. I couldn’t even give what they do justice in a blog, so I have attached a couple of links for my readers to get an idea of what these men are like.
