SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., May 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Sovereign Health Group today announced that its Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Tonmoy Sharma, will give a presentation on cognitive remediation at a continuing education luncheon on Tuesday, May 31, 2016, at the Center Club in Costa Mesa, California, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
The talk titled, "Un-frying the Neurons: Reversing Cognitive Deficits in Addiction Treatment and Mental Health" will explore how the proactive application of cognitive remediation methodologies can be valuable tools in reversing the deficits left behind by the use of harmful substances and can also improve cognitive deficits caused by mental illnesses.
Noted Ash Bhatt, M.D., Sovereign Health Group's Chief Medical Officer, "As the scientific and treatment communities have come to understand and recognize addiction as a disease, Tonmoy Sharma's presentation will help to better understand the influence illicit drugs and alcohol have on the pathogenesis of disease severity and cognitive deficits. Equally critical are the potential benefits of certain treatments, such as cognitive remediation, on reversing these deficits."
Dr. Tonmoy Sharma has been recognized with numerous awards, honors and grants for his work in advancing mental health and its treatments in the U.S., Europe and Southeast Asia. In 2009, Dr. Sharma helped to found the Sovereign Health Group, one of the country's leading behavioral health treatment companies, which now operates nine treatment facilities throughout the United States.
This presentation will provide one continuing education (C.E.) credit (free to all attendees) and is approved for one contact hour by the California Board of Registered Nursing and meets the qualifications for one C.E. credit per the California Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS) and the National Association for Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselors (NAADAC).
