PHD Eating Disorders Expert on KRLD-AM
Sandy Mullen, R.N., an eating disorders specialist at Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas, spoke with KRLD-AM (1080) radio this week about her new book, Swinging Door of Addiction: A Spiritual Guide to Recovery. Mullen's book, co-authored with Cathy Napier, former director of PHD’s chemical dependency program, gives readers a glimpse into the world of dual addictions, substance abuse and eating disorders. Through their work together at PHD, the authors found that the seemingly successful treatment of a patient’s primary addiction often fed the growth of another, hidden addiction. The authors will host a book signing at 7 p.m. on Nov. 14 at Borders in Dallas' West Village.
