In honor of September Recovery Month The Lynhall is hosting an event series that integrates science with soul. These events are focused on creating a deeper understanding of addiction, recovery and healing. We hope you will join us for a vibrant and engaging series.
Join us as we welcome medical director for Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation’s youth services, Dr. Joseph Lee, to The Lynhall for a conversation around why addiction remains a stigmatized but ubiquitous issue in society. The purpose of this presentation is to change our perspectives on addiction and recovery from a developmental and scientific perspective. The presentation will add additional fresh perspectives on the opioid crisis, suicides, and our relationship to technology/social media.

A triple-boarded physician, he completed his Adult Psychiatry residency at Duke University Hospital and his fellowship in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry from Johns Hopkins Hospital. He is a diplomate of the American Board of Addiction Medicine and is a member of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry’s Substance Abuse Committee.
Dr. Lee’s experience with families from across the country and abroad provide him with an unparalleled perspective on emerging drug trends, co-occurring mental health conditions, and the ever-changing culture of addiction.
