Medical Terrorists: Unethical and Uninformed Doctors Armed with Prescription Pads

It is an honor to be a physician. It is an even greater privilege to use my knowledge and ability at Timberline Knolls to help very ill girls and women recover from addictions, eating disorders, and other mental health issues.

Cosmetic Surgery Hits a New Low

Are women in our society ever “good enough” just as they are? Evidently not. Breast implants, liposuction, tummy tucks, face lifts, butt enhancements, fillers, Botox, fat sucked out of one area and injected into another—the list truly goes on and on. The necessity for women of all ages to be beautiful, as narrowly defined by … Read More

New Research Regarding Psychedelic Agents

Psychedelics blasted their way into the public consciousness in the 1960s. They were all the rage among hippies and flower children of that era. Commensurately, they entered the field of drug research around that time; but due to myriad questionable practices, this research was suspended in the 70s. Research regarding the efficacy of using psychedelics has returned. Several small studies have shown “success” in using these … Read More

But, it is in the months following childbirth that profound and life-changing … Read More

Treating Co-occurring Disorders Together: It’s Time for Change

A tragic story was reported in the news earlier this month; it centered on a young man’s effort to obtain treatment for alcoholism and bulimia. After getting bounced around from clinic to clinic in Arizona and California, Brandon Jacques ultimately died of sudden cardiac arrest. He was the victim of negligent treatment and multiple flaws in the health care systems from which he sought help. These flaws involved clinical ignorance in the area of assessment and treatment of … Read More

Power, Productivity and Pills: A Dangerous Triad

Adderall is the prescription drug that just keeps on giving, regrettably continuing to give treatment centers like Timberline Knolls more profoundly addicted people to treat. Adderall is an amphetamine. It’s legitimately used to treat narcolepsy and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). For years, this drug was typically misused by college students to facilitate studying. Then, … Read More
