Despite multiple school and geographical changes, many medications, psychiatry visits, and countless inpatient and outpatient treatments, he could not free himself from the hold of addiction. After 11 years of fighting an uphill battle with sobriety, Lucas accepted treatment in Asheville, North Carolina that led him to a fulfilling, sober life. His new lifestyle was not effortless.
DR. DAVID MOORE
“I was trained to prescribe medicine in an evidence-based approach. What does that mean? It means I want to use the right medicine, at the right dose, at the right time, keeping the medicine as minimal as possible, only prescribing what is needed. I am not a psychiatrist that just keeps adding and adding medicine - that approach never leads to desirable results.” - Dr. David Moore
