Dr. Tascarella's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Tascarella "The Institute for Higher Living is based on Dr. Tascarella's philosophy of achieving wellness through balance of mind, body and spirit. He has dedicated his life toward making a difference in how Behavioral Healthcare is delivered, taking it to a much needed and more contemporary approach to diagnosis and treatment. He and his staff genuinely care about each individual under our care in terms of feelings, meeting one's goals, achieving happiness and feeling fulfilled in one's life. Dr. Tascarella is one of the Nation's top-rated psychiatrists. He has special expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of ADD/ADHD [Attention Deficit (Hyperactivity) Disorder] and Alcohol/Drug Dependencies. He has been designated as a National Thought Leader in Psychiatry. Dr. Tascarella also specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of Depression, Anxiety, Panic Disorder, Bipolar Disorder (including Acute Mania), Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Sleep Disorders, Psychosis and Obesity/Morbid Obesity, among others. Dr. Tascarella has developed revolutionary diagnostic and treatment protocols over the last 25 years through his own independent research and data analysis. 80-90% of those he treats for alcoholism/addiction succeed in long term recovery utilizing his unique outpatient approaches. His expertise allows for accurate diagnoses of behavioral and medical conditions that are very often missed by other providers. All too often, someone is referred for evaluation of a behavioral health issue which ultimately turns out to be medical in origin, although, it presents itself with behavioral signs and symptoms. One of Dr. Tascarella's patient's, Kevin Patrick, wrote "No Way to be Treated," a book inspired by his many failed treatments which lead up to his successful treatment under Dr. Tascarella's care. Dr. Tascarella was honored by Kevin's requesting him to write the Foreword to the book, being included in the acknowledgements along with Kevin's family and being referenced in the book."
