MAY 22ND
Mel Pohl, MD, FASAM
Book Title: A Day Without Pain

Chronic Pain: It’s All In Your Head: When we think about pain we often wonder whether it’s “real’ or not. We have a tendency to believe that pain based on emotions is less “valid” than physical pain. This discussion will explore the fact that all pain is real, based on neurophysiologic phenomena in specific parts of the brain. Treatment implications will be described as part of “Pain Recovery”.

Mel Pohl, MD, FASAM is a Board Certified Family Practitioner. He is the Vice President of Medical Affairs and Medical Director of Las Vegas Recovery, a private, freestanding chemical dependency and pain treatment fac­­­ility, and is licensed by the State of Nevada and accredited by the Joint Commission (JCAHO). Dr. Pohl was a major force in developing Las Vegas Recovery’s Chronic Pain rehabilitation program. The facility provides a complete continuum of care and has long been considered the best in the country.

JUNE 26TH
Noah Levine, MA
Book Title: Refuge Recovery – A Buddhist path to recovering from addiction.

The Buddhist path to treating addiction is one of developing wisdom and compassion through meditation, renunciation and wise actions such as service, amends, forgiveness and generosity. Buddhism offers a non-thiestic spiritual path, perfect for the discerning Atheist addict. Refuge Recovery is a program that can work in conjunction with or as an alternative to twelve steps.

Noah Levine is the founder of the “Against The Stream Buddhist Meditation Society” with centers in Los Angeles and San Francisco and over 20 affiliated groups in North America and Europe. He teaches meditation groups, gives workshops and leads retreats internationally. Noah has created a process of addiction recovery based on the teachings of the Buddha called Refuge Recovery.
