Help End the Addiction Epidemic. Join the New SMART Insiders+ Program

 Listen to a podcast of this past event.


Dr. Christopher J. Tuell
Clinical Director of Addiction Services
Lindner Center of HOPE | University of Cincinnati Health 
Saturday, June 24, 5:00 PM EDT

This promises to be a fascinating and far-reaching discussion, beginning with a look at today’s opiate epidemic.

From there, Dr. Tuell will highlight the relationship between mental health and addiction and how they intersect. We hope the conversation will add to awareness of the ways in which addiction shows itself – in today’s opiate crisis, but much more broadly.

Most important, we hope to carry a message of hope and encouragement, to shine a lens on compassionate and respectful ways to engage when people have trouble dealing with the pressures of our complicated society.

As Clinical Director of Addiction Services at Lindner Center of HOPE, Dr. Chris Tuell provides mental health and addiction psychotherapy services to a wide variety of treatment populations. Dr. Tuell is also Assistant Professor at the University of University of Cincinnati’s Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Neuroscience. He is a clinical psychotherapist and a chemical and behavioral addiction specialist with over 30 years of experience in the field of mental health and addictions.

Prior to joining Lindner Center of HOPE, Dr. Tuell served as Center Director and Director of Employee Assistance Programs for Family Service of the Cincinnati Area, as Clinical Director of the Warren County Juvenile Justice Center and as a psychotherapist for Community Mental Health Centers of Warren County in Lebanon, Ohio and Mental Health Services West in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Dr. Tuell earned his Doctorate degree from the University of Cincinnati, and is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, and a Licensed Independent Chemical Dependency Counselor in the State of Ohio.

One of the things we love about Dr. Tuell and the Lindner Center because it resonates so strongly with SMART, is their commitment to choice – both in making people aware of their choices and in helping to actively provide choices in help whenever they can. They’ve been great friends to SMART over many years now and have graciously hosted open meetings at their beautiful facility for 8 years now!

Thank you, Lindner Center!
