The use of medicinal marijuana has been a controversial topic, and there is recently evidence of treatment for various mental health disorders. In this episode, Dr. William Sauvé discusses the pros and cons of marijuana within the medical setting.

Dr. William M. Sauvé received his medical degree from the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland, and completed his residency in adult psychiatry at the National Capitol Consortium in Washington, DC, prior to deploying to the Al Anbar Province, Iraq, as the Regimental Psychiatrist for the 7th Marines.

After eleven years of active duty service, Dr. Sauvé left the United States Navy to become the Clinical Director of the Military Program at Poplar Springs Hospital in Petersburg, VA, an inpatient structured program for the treatment of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and Chemical Dependency that caters exclusively to the military population. In 2014, he left Poplar Springs Hospital to focus on Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation and now serves as the Medical Director for TMS NeuroHealth Centers in Richmond (Glen Allen) and Charlottesville, VA. Dr. Sauvé also consults for pharmaceutical companies and associated industries as well.

He is a member of the American Psychiatric Association, and certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. Dr. Sauvé also recently co-authored “Psychopharmacological Treatment,” with Dr. Stahl, a chapter in Treating PTSD in Military Personnel, edited by Bret Moore and Walter Penk.
