Timmen Cermak, M.D.

Dr. Cermak is currently focused on effective treatment for adolescents who are harmfully involved in alcohol and other drugs. He notes that since a high percentage of these teens are children of addicts, this is the same population he was concerned about when he became involved in founding NACoA. He wrote White Papers on marijuana for the California Society of Addictive Medicine when California passed its medical marijuana law, and a book for parents: Marijuana: What’s a Parent to Do? He continues in private practice, and was named Best Psychiatrist by San Francisco Magazine.
