Senior citizens represent a silent but growing portion of the community who face addiction to both prescription and illegal drugs. As dire as the situation has become, with appropriate medical intervention, many lives can be saved. Dr. Stuart Finkelstein, whose longstanding practice in Cerritos has successfully treated hundreds of chemical-dependant seniors, will lecture on the topic of "Why Senior Citizens are addicted to drugs."

Dr. Finkelstein is a popular lecturer who treats chemical dependency as a physiological illness requiring medical treatment. His specifically targeted methods for meeting the needs of the recovering patient, has a record of offering hope to thousands of recovering senior addicts. "If someone has an addiction, it does not make them a bad person," says Finkelstein. "For the last 25 years I have been employing a medical treatment approach to help seniors with their addiction that helps them get back to living a productive life."

About Dr. Finkelstein
The LA Times dubbed him the "Rock Doc" years ago for his extensive medical and addiction work in the music industry. Dr. Finkelstein recently moved his thirty year practice from Cerritos to the city of Lakewood — where he enjoys long-established community ties — and is available to treat individuals who are suffering from chemical dependency. "It’s where I spend most of my time," he says. "It is near the hospital and my home is in Lakewood."
