The Heroin Epidemic in America - Why Now? with Dr. Steven Kassels

Date: 
Mon, 2015-12-07 19:00 to 21:00
Location: 
UMass Amherst, Integrative Learning Center, Room N151

The School of Public Health and Health Sciences presents “The Heroin Epidemic in America - Why Now?”, a talk by Steven Kassels, M.D., on Monday, December 7th, from 7:00 – 9:00 pm in the Integrative Learning Center (ILC), Room N151.

Dr. Steven Kassels has been Board Certified in both Addiction Medicine and Emergency Medicine. He has served as the Medical Consultant to the CARF-Opiate Treatment Program National Accreditation Project; testified at the New Hampshire House and Senate Hearings pertaining to expansion of treatment services for opiate dependent patients; presented on behalf of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health at the Heroin Treatment Seminar; and served as a course facilitator on behalf of the American Society of Addiction Medicine. After earning board certification in Addiction Medicine, Dr. Kassels was appointed Medical Director of the inpatient and outpatient addiction service at Providence Hospital, Holyoke, Massachusetts, providing polysubstance abuse treatment to both adults and adolescents. He is currently the Medical Director and a founding member of Community Substance Abuse Centers, which specializes in the treatment of opiate addicted patients throughout New England.

This program is free and open to the public and all Five College students.

Join Dr. Kassels at the UMass Bookstore from 1-2 pm, where he will be signing copies of his book, Addiction on Trial. All author proceeds from book sales from the bookstore and after the evening presentation will be donated to Craig’s Doors, a homeless shelter in Amherst.

Addiction on Trial sends a powerful message through its fictional narrative about a trio of characters with opiate and cocaine addictions. The messages of societal discrimination toward drug addicts and misunderstanding of what drug addiction really is – a chronic illness requiring a similar treatment approach as other chronic diseases – is woven into the intrigue of this thriller.
