Dr. Dysart's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Dysart "My name is Dr. Dorsey Dysart, and I am fully committed to your recovery, your success and helping you build a happy, healthy life. I understand how hard it is to overcome these afflictions and have made it my goal in life to help others, and to promote your success. I have invested countless hours in the education, experience, research, and treatment of addiction. Through the practice of neurology, psychiatry, psychoanalysis, and addictionology, I understand how hard it is to overcome these afflictions. If you are struggling with addiction (alcohol, drugs, food, gambling and/or sex), I can help. When you select my outpatient treatment, your treatment plan will follow the same steps to success, that are the same, yet unique to everyone. You are not beyond hope, you are only beyond the boundaries, of whatever place you are in life. That is why I am dedicated, to helping you establish these boundaries, and help you become the best of who you are!"
