Recharging your body and mind, improving your focus and boosting clarity are all great reasons to meditate – but what if you could improve on what you’re already doing?
Girls are often born into this world surrounded by messages about who they are supposed to be, and who they should become; Be cute. Smile. Be a nice girl. Just give them a hug. Don’t make a fuss. Suck in your belly. Be the ideal body type. Look sexy. Stay pure and innocent. Be good in bed. You can have it all if you do it this way.
Individuals in recovery have generally spent a lot of time avoiding their painful, shameful or fearful reality. Using chemicals, relationships, busyness, spending, eating, not eating, fantasy, gambling, sex, etc. to escape reality.
Grief is a fact of life. As much as we hate it, fight it, or hide from it, it still lurks in the background. Allowing time and space for grief is not something I have always done.
We’re excited to share the news that we’ll be expanding our team to include Dr. Terry Eagan, He will be joining us as a Senior Fellow for all of our Meadows Behavioral Healthcare programs.
Dr. Eagan is a prominent Beverly Hills psychiatrist, and founder and CEO of Eagan Medical Group, LLC., a thriving mental health practice treating over 2000 patients annually. He also has years of experience as the Medical Director of several addiction and eating disorder treatment centers throughout the Los Angeles area. Most recently, he founded The Eagan Institute, an innovative new organization focusing on the advanced diagnostics and treatment of brain injuries and brain disorders.
He is an expert in the complexities of mental health and addiction treatment, and he specializes in effective treatment regimens for all types of emotional distress that often can arise from being in positions of responsibility and public attention. In addition to his specialties in primary psychiatric conditions, substance abuse disorders, trauma, abuse, impulse control disorders, human sexuality, and spiritual therapy, he also has 20 years of experience in treating patients with eating disorders.
He is also a leader in Professional Ethics and Compassion Fatigue and has guided training programs for individual practitioners, multinational corporations, public school systems, community health centers, law enforcement agencies, hospitals, and universities.
And, like us, he believes in multi-faceted treatment approaches that incorporate pharmacologic interventions with evidence-based therapies, adjunctive modalities, and traditional spiritual practices.
As part of his Senior Fellowship, Dr. Eagan will provide training on pertinent topics to staff, give occasional presentations to patients, and help to further develop and guide our treatment programs. We’re so glad to add Dr. Eagan’s expertise to an already top-notch team of compassionate and dedicated professionals at The Meadows programs.
