Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment North Pole AK

Drug addiction is a serious issue for doctors, nurses and other health care providers. If you’re a surgeon who is literally holding someone’s life in your hands, or a nurse trying to care for too many patients in an overcrowded emergency room, or a resident who’s been responding to crises for too many hours on too little sleep, the stressors are enormous.
