Andrew Tatarsky PhD- Gets Interview in Health & Lifestyle – Harm Reduction 30 years of Experience

Great to see more publicity where Andrew Tatarsky gets a nice write up.

Dr. Andrew Tatarsky, PhD, founder and director of the Center for Optimal Living based in New York City, has over 30 years experience in the addiction and mental health field. He tells us why abstinence is not the total solution for problematic behaviors and why we should provide care and proper treatment for patients instead of incarcerating them. Mylene C.

We all go through life’s difficulties, losses, and challenges, while some people can handle it perfectly well, some turn to alcohol and substance abuse to ease their pain and loneliness and it knows no age and gender.


A 74-year-old man has lost his partner from heart attack a number of years ago. He never remarried but has lost a number of friends to death as well. He retired from a teaching job so there was an accumulation of losses that contributed to his excessive drinking to the point of black out several times a week.


A 19-year-old college student had a very mixed drug use problem with a lot of marijuana, heroin, cocaine, and pills. His drug use had escalated after a staph infection that nearly killed him so he had to leave college. While recuperating, he began using an increasing amount of drugs.


Dr. Andrew Tatarsky, PhD, founder and director of the Center for Optimal Living based in New York City revealed that these are some examples of how their patients cope with loneliness and medical illness.  Read full story here and please share on all blogs and social media and twitter.
