Trauma, PTSD and Cannabis – with Sara Makin
Over 70 percent of Americans will experience a traumatic event in their lifetime, and 20 percent will develop some form of PTSD because of it. So says, Sara Makin, a mental health specialist with offices in Pittsburgh and New Kensington. She uses a variety of new methods — including medical cannabis — to treat PTSD, addiction and other mental health issues. A PTSD diagnosis from her can help get you certified when you meet with a certifying physician, but that is only the start of the healing work she can do. She recently sat down with Dispense Magazine to discuss trauma, PTSD and cannabis.
