Lourdes Jeannette Chahin is a Psychiatrist with Caron Renaissance since 2012. She originally began on a part time basis, and then transitioned to full time status. This position has changed her career path forever, as she discovered and believed in their philosophy, as the only way to bring hope to these young men and woman struggling with the terrible disease of addiction, one that the medical model has traditionally deemed incurable.
She completed her Psychiatric Residency at Bronx Lebanon Hospital Center in 1994, and her Child and Adolescent Fellowship at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 1996.
She is licensed in the States of NY, GA, PR and FL. She has had two very successful private practices working primarily with children, adolescents and their families. It has always been her philosophy to be conservative with medications, as she knows it is only part of the treatment.
Born and raised in the island of the Dominican Republic, she graduated Medical School at age 23 from Universidad Nacional Pedro Henriquez Urena. She is a member of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and is working towards becoming a member of the American Society of Addiction Medicine.
