Sarah Oliveira McDonald, a long time listener of our podcast and part of the La Hacienda family, extended an invitation on behalf of La Hacienda Treatment Center for our team to visit their incredible campus located in Hunt, Texas. As our listeners know, we are always searching for treatment facilities that provide exemplary services. We volunteered our time with a mission to get to know their staff who are considered family and interview some of their clinical team.
Please welcome Dr. Katie McQueen to the show. We had the honor of listening to one of the many educational sessions she provides for staff and residents. She joined us in her office to discuss addiction and co-occurring disorders. Join us for an eye opening discussion about the full spectrum of addiction disorders with some special focus on food addiction.
