Recovery Month event: Addiction on Trial - Dr. Steven Kassels
Thursday September 7, 2017
7:00 PM until 9:00 PM
Safe Harbor Cohasset Coalition and the Paul Pratt Memorial Library is sponsoring a book talk with Dr. Steven Kassels.
Steve Kassels will speak about his fiction book, "Addiction on Trial: Tragedy in Downeast Maine," on Thursday, September 7th. Steven Kassels MD, has had the privilege of treating patients from all walks of life during his years of practice in both emergency medicine and addiction medicine. He believes that everyone deserves compassion and access to medical care regardless of the nature of the illness. He wrote Addiction on Trial to both entertain and educate, and to depict the struggles of addiction for an audience of avid readers who may expand their understanding of addiction on the basis of evidence. Dedicated to his work in addiction medicine, he is also passionate about tennis, backcountry skiing, biking, music, and the Boston Red Sox. Kassels turns his addiction medicine and emergency medicine experiences into a journey of suspense while exploring love and loss, family dysfunction, and the what-ifs of life; the journey will continue in the next Shawn Marks Thriller, Lost to Addiction.
