An Evening with Dr. Gregory B. Collins

Dr. Gregory Collins, board-certified psychiatrist with FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital Behavioral Health, has dedicated his entire professional career to the treatment of alcohol and drug problems. Dr. Collins graduated from the Ohio State University College of Medicine and is a veteran of the United States Navy. In the 1980s, Dr. Collins founded the Cleveland Clinic's Alcohol and Drug Recovery Center, which he led for 35 years. After retirement from Cleveland Clinic, Dr. Collins moved to Pinehurst where he has continued to treat patients with substance abuse and alcohol problems through FirstHealth Behavioral Services. Dr. Collins has been the recipient of several local and national awards, including being named one of America's Best Doctors for fourteen years.
Dr. Collins will speak on the roles of faith and grace as they relate to mental illness and addiction.
