Nizhoni Health Systems

Drug Abuse Facts and Education

Throughout our company's history, Nizhoni Health has made efforts to hire the most experienced clinicians with a knack for seeing emerging trends in health care. We choose those that are dedicated not only to treating our patients effectively, but also finding ways to ensure our services become better each and every day. Our clinicians are truly dedicated to the communities in which they live and work.

On occasion, one of our clinicians will earn an award or demonstrate expertise through a quote in the media. We’re happy to say that one of our longest-tenured clinicians is featured in a recent post for Wicked Local Watertown.

Priscilla Brown, a Watertown resident, spoke with Dana Forsythe about the importance of National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week, which was from January 23-January 29.

In the story, Brown mentioned that due to tendencies for risk-taking, teenagers are especially susceptible to substance abuse. National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week was created to address that specific issue.

Brown described the struggles that so many Americans go through each year involving drug and alcohol abuse, as well as mental illnesses. She added that many people abuse substances to cover up symptoms of mental illnesses.
