Hi! My name is Michael Dennis. I'm a research psychologist specializing in research on addiction, treatment and recovery. I do work over the life course ranging from work with adolescence to young adults, adults and into those who are aging. I have four kids of my own as well as two grandkids. My wife and I live within five miles of four generations of my family and have big Sunday dinners. We both love to cook and garden and do things with our kids and grandkids.
