Kevin McCauley, M.D. on Addiction

A couple of years ago I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Kevin McCauley and hearing one of his inspiring talks on addiction and recovery. Kevin is a graduate of the Medical College of Pennsylvania. He joined the Navy and became a Naval Flight Surgeon. After earning his wings at Pensacola, Florida he was assigned to a Marine helicopter squadron (The Red Lions). Later he was transferred to Marine F/A-18 Hornet squadron (Sharpshooters). While working as a flight surgeon he treated pilots with alcohol and drug problems. As a physician, he advocates strongly for addicts and alcoholics, and he's an excellent presenter and speaker. Kevin and his colleagues have produced a series of videos that are basic, very understandable, and created with great production values. The videos are available on YouTube, and an introduction to the series is on my media page here.
