Sovereign Health CEO Dr. Tonmoy Sharma, author, and mental health specialist, had the honor of sharing his expertise on substance abuse and mental health issues to a nationwide audience in the United States. The Public Broadcasting Services (PBS) picked Dr. Sharma to speak about the current treatments available to dealing with addiction and behavioral struggles. The episode aired in August 2017.
During the broadcast, Dr. Sharma had agreed with the recent statement issued by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) that America as a nation is gripped by an addiction crisis. While the government made a sobering admission, the Sovereign boss said there is a piece of good news – that a cure is available for those in need of care.
Mental health specialist Dr. Tonmoy Sharma said Sovereign, for instance, is at the forefront of addressing the plague of addiction. The Sovereign health system boasts a broad spectrum of high-quality behavioral health treatment and services, uniquely designed for adults and adolescents alike.
Sovereign Pushes Holistic Treatment For Addiction
In his talk, Dr. Sharma said the ideal approach of treating substance abuse is to process both a patient’s struggle with addiction and the underlying mental condition. He shared that “about 60% of people with addiction also suffer from a mental health disorder.”
“Patients who’ve been treated for both mental health and addiction receive better outcomes than those who are treated solely for addiction,” the doctor continued.
He added that mental health disorder treatment has two important components – effective counseling from a licensed specialist and the treatment of depression and bipolar disorder. Sovereign can offer the same treatment procedure that will give a lasting effect, according to Dr. Tonmoy Sharma, author, and mental health specialist.
“Sovereign Health is a group of physicians and psychologists that have been trained and have practiced in the behavioral health field. We’re very interested in making sure that we are held to the standards of both assessment and treatment in this industry,” stated the company chief.
Mental health specialist Dr. Tonmoy Sharma said Sovereign intends for patients to get the treatment they require with utmost confidence and comfort.
Sovereign Benefits From Dr. Sharma’s Expertise On Mental Health
Dr. Sharma speaks with authority about mental health, backed by his solid credentials. As a scientist and researcher, he authored and co-authored over 200 peer-reviewed articles and five books that offer extensive discussion on schizophrenia and mental disorders.
His involvement in 14 medical journals published internationally served as evidence that Dr. Sharma is continuing to learn and actively add to his already vaunted expertise. And for the Sovereign CEO, it is a welcome chance to share his knowledge on the PBS platform, which is widely considered the largest classroom in the United States.
PBS’s network of broadcasting stations across America is a learning window trusted by millions of schoolchildren, an audience that Dr. Sharma now reaches.
