Help for Smoking cessation

We highly recommend smoking cessation for all smokers. There are many resources available at national and state levels. We will be happy to discuss medication options for smoking cessation in the context of a smoking cessation program.

Understanding effects of Caffeine  

If you’re a caffeine user, we highly recommend that you familiarize yourself with a comprehensive understanding of the effects of caffeine.


A good local resource is Insight Meditation Fort Wayne at 

You may also consider educational videos on line by Jon Kabat-Zinn. 

Community Mental Health Centers

If your problems are such that they cannot be appropriately addressed in our small one physician office, we  may refer you to a local community mental health center. They receive substantial grants from federal and state governments  and have large multidisciplinary resources to help address complex long-standing problems that need close coordination in multidisciplinary treatment teams. Two  major community mental health centers in our community are Park Center (260-481-2800) and Bowen center (260-471-3500).
