Clearbrook Treatment Center's Trish Colangelo was one of four expert alcohol and chemical dependency panel members invited to participate on Northeastern Pennsylvania WVIA's public television show "Call The Doctor" aired on January 8, 2013. The other members of the panel were Lackawanna drug treatment court Judge Michael Barresse, A Better Today's Vincent Carolan Jr., and Marworth associate medical director Dr. David Withers.
The show dealt with the issue of family treatment and the impact of addiction on families before a packed live audience. George Thomas of WVIA was the moderator. The format consisted of Thomas first asking questions of the panel members. The show then opened up its phone lines and took live questions from callers and emails which were then directed to the panel members.
Prior to the start of the show, WVIA's Mr. Thomas encouraged members of the audience to participate by asking the panel questions or telling their story from a family perspective. Several members of the audience got up and related their stories and the impact visited upon their family by a family member's addiction. The show's message to its viewing audience was the need for and availability of treatment help for family members. Clearbrook Treatment Centers "Family Focus Program" was offered as an example of programs available to help families.
Our adolescent patients at Clear Brook Lodge were entertained on November 10, 2012 by the Body Language Studios opening presentation of Panther Dream, an interactive ballet based upon an African rainforest legend. Directed by Wendy Weir Henry, this delightful ballet is especially designed to provide unique expressive opportunities and the uplifting experience of movement by the audience throughout the dance production.
