Her body gives a quick jar as she is startled at the sight of her daughter, Sarah, sitting at the kitchen table—her head buried in her hands. Sarah looks up at her mother, eyes bloodshot from lack of sleep. Alice pats her on the shoulder, turns, grabs the coffee pot, and begins to run the water to make...

Medical Marijuana-A Magic Bullet for Treating PTSD?

Pharmacogenetics/Pharmacogenomics: A Pathway to More Effective Treatment

After researching and writing a White Paper on this topic, I found it important enough to engage others in its relevance.

Despite clinical evidence that addiction can be due in large part to a predisposition to the disease, many still find themselves caught in the throes of guilt, blame, and self-blame. This article focuses on expressing the correlation between genetics and the vulnerability of its overall effect as it relates to addiction by presenting it in the context of a story: lineage of a family, evidentiary documentation, closing paragraph w/bulleted list of Sagebrush's services, and closing CTA.
