GUEST:  Teri Woods, Ph. D., Clinical Psychologist, The Psychology Center of Madison

Managing addictions is more than simply abstaining from whatever substance creates the problem in the first place says clinical psychologist Dr. Teri Woods, who is now in private practice at The Psychology Center in Madison.  Remaining “powerless” over an addiction does not address the underlying reason or allow a person to move beyond the addiction and thrive.  “I like challenges,” says Dr. Woods, and working with people striving to overcome addictions and moving them into “Next” – living the best life ever beyond the addiction has been one of her most rewarding.

On this program, hear Dr. Teri Woods speak to the well-researched methods of overcoming addictions and the importance of mental health treatment as a critical component to overall health care.
