Cori Buck is a healthcare professional with over six years of experience in the field of substance abuse and addiction recovery. She uses her expertise to provide insight into our nation's drug epidemic and other issues surrounding medical care in our society.
Cori started her career at a holistic drug and alcohol rehabilitation center, where she learned the importance of treating the underlying issues that lead to addiction.

Doing such has given her experience in understanding why people relapse and skill in preventing this in the clients she's worked with, many of whom are still drug-free today. Her insights into addiction make Cori and an excellent resource for drug education and substance abuse treatment information.
