National Expert on Prescription Drug Abuse, Addicted Physicians Available for Media Interviews From Hazelden
Date:6/26/2009

CENTER CITY, Minn., June 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Marv Seppala, M.D., chief medical officer for renowned substance abuse treatment center Hazelden, is now available for media interviews about the dangers of addiction to prescription drugs - a growing problem that not only impacts wealthy and famous celebrities, but everyday people from teens to older adults. Marv can speak in layman's terms about the complicated disease of addiction, especially addiction to painkillers and other prescription drugs.

A board member of the American Society of Addiction Medicine with 20 years of experience in addiction treatment and psychiatry, Dr. Seppala is also an expert resource for any media story involving addicted healthcare professionals, as hospitals and clinics struggle with how to treat addicted physicians, dentists, anesthesiologists and other medical professionals who have easy access to prescription medicines. Dr. Seppala, a graduate of Mayo Medical School, is well-regarded for his ground-breaking work in pharmacological studies and evidence-based systems in addiction treatment.

Dr. Seppala has appeared as a guest on the CBS-TV "Early Show" and National Public Radio; he has been quoted in the New York Times, The Washington Post, USA Today, Newsweek and The Wall Street Journal.

To schedule media interviews with Dr. Seppala, call Hazelden public relations staffperson Christine Anderson at cell: 715-553-0268 or via email: canderson@hazelden.org.
