All about The Rehab Doc

The Rehab Doc is edited by Dr. Anthony Sharkey MB, Bch, BA0, DCH, Trinity 1982. Dr Sharkey qualified in Medicine from Trinity College Dublin in 1982. In 1985 he took a year off to explore Buddhism and its teachings. Twenty years later he was ordained and now lives and works in Dublin as a doctor and holistic Buddhist teacher.

Why create the rehab doc website?

“The notion of the rehab doc grew from so often being asked for advice about where to look on the web from people seeking information about addiction and treatments. When I looked, and I have looked extensively, around the web I was struck by the lack of any whole-person, whole-life addiction problem website. So I decided to do it myself.

The concept is simple – to provide a website without gimmicks, tricks or commercial considerations that respects the intelligence of readers and does more than just skim the surface.”

The Rehab Doc articles discuss every aspect of what it takes to free you from the rigors of addiction and this includes health, fitness and quality-of-life topics that really matter, that make a difference to the process of recovery. As well as a lot of practical, sensible and down to earth information about addiction in all its forms, you will find articles about today’s responses to addiction, treatment approaches and therapies.

Of course there are many pages dedicated to single subjects – each of the top 40 abused drugs of today are covered individually, including alcohol. We will be adding to the site all the time, with articles about gambling and other addictions already in the pipe-line.
