We’re honored to have Rosewood Centers for Eating Disorders Executive Clinical Director, Dr. Dena Cabrera, interviewed by The New York Times for their piece on the controversial Netflix Film: ‘To The Bone.’ In this compelling article, Dr. Cabrera discusses concerns about how the film could be triggering to those struggling with eating disorders and offers advice to parents on how to educate themselves on the true diversity and complexity of eating disorders, which is only represented superficially throughout ‘To The Bone.’

While we know that addiction does not discriminate, and that both men and women are equally affected, gender differences can greatly impact the pathway to treatment. Women face unique circumstances when battling addiction. They may be more susceptible to certain types of addiction, progress into addiction faster and socially suffer greater stigma, which can be a barrier to seeking treatment. Our addiction experts and counselors understand the struggles of being a woman with a substance use disorder. Learn more about how Malibu Beach Recovery Centers For Women By Women addiction treatment program is tailored to address these unique needs by creating a safe and nurturing space for lasting recovery.

RiverMend Health Centers Medical Director, Dr. Stacy Seikel, was featured in a special WSB-TV investigative report on Atlanta’s growing Fentanyl epidemic. Fentanyl is a highly potent synthetic opioid that can cause overdose deaths with just a single dose. This trend is extremely disturbing because unsuspecting users who think they’re buying prescription pain pills like Percocet and Oxycodone are literally risking their lives. Led by Dr. Stacy Seikel, our team of board-certified physicians and clinicians live and work in the Atlanta community. We understand the pain families are feeling. Seeking help is the first step. Please call us at 844-712-4997 for a confidential consultation.
