Omar Manejwala, M.D. is a psychiatrist and an internationally recognized expert on addiction and compulsive behavior. He is the former medical director of Hazelden, an addiction treatment center, and currently the Chief Medical Officer of Catasys, a health management services company specializing in substance dependence.

Dr. Manejwala has appeared on numerous national media programs including 20/20, CBS Evening News with Katie Couric, and The CBS Early Show.

Although an expert on craving, he has not yet figured out how to conquer his own craving for spending time with his wife Cecily and their two sons, although he seems just fine with that.

Recent celebrity overdoses have raised the question...does anyone actually stay sober? If someone has been abstinent from alcohol and drugs for a few years, or even a few decades, what are the chances that they will relapse?
