I am Dr. Evan Miller, an Addiction Specialist trying to remove the stigma around addiction and help people recover, AMA!
Hello everyone! My name is Dr. Evan Miller. I am the CEO & Founder of Akua Mind & Body (https://www.akuatreatmentprograms.com), an integrative addiction treatment program in Newport Beach, CA. I’m fairly new to the concept of Reddit, but I’ve noticed that there is a community of support here for addiction and recovery, and I’d love to reach out, help, be part of and contribute to the conversation!
My Short Bio: I’ve lectured nationally and internationally on addiction (http://www.addictionpro.com/ncad-conference/2014-speakers). I’ve also made appearances on TV as an expert in the field. I’ve also been interviewed in various print and digital media outlets (http://www.consciousrecoverybyclare.com/sportsandlossevanmiller). I am a registered Addiction Specialist and have a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology. I have an extensive background in addiction program development, evidence-based treatment initiatives, and athletic performance enhancement. My research areas include addiction, sport psychology, personality structure, and archetypal psychology. I write a blog on Akua Mind & Body’s website and you can find my latest post here (http://www.akuatreatmentprograms.com/aboutus/articles/).
I’m only going to be online for an hour, so I will try to answer as many questions as I can. If you want, follow me on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/akuamindbody) or Twitter(https://www.twitter.com/akuamindbody). Ask me anything!
Edit: That's it guys! I gotta go. If you have questions, please visit the Akua website or our social and send us a message. Had a great time.
Edit 2: So many more great questions! I'm going to try and answer the rest when I have the time.
