William J. Lorman, JD, PhD, MSN, PMHNP-BC, NCPsyA, FAAN

As a nurse executive and practitioner, I have made an enduring impact on patients suffering from addiction. I have held multiple leadership positions in the International Nurses Society on Addictions including the role of President-Elect and President. I have provided vision and support to the nurses in the state of Pennsylvania through my work with the Pennsylvania Peer Assistance Program for Nurses (PNAP) as President, and Chair of the Board of Directors and currently as a member of the board. Through my organizational leadership, I have established international and state guidelines and policies related to care of individuals with addictions, including nurses themselves with addictions. I have provided addiction treatment education to undergraduate and graduate nursing students at Drexel University in my role as a part-time faculty member and also, when requested, at other universities as a visiting lecturer. I have conducted webinars, and presentations on “Addictions Treatment, Pharmacology, Neurobiology,” and other topics related to addictions, thus educating thousands of nurses. Believing that all nurses are addictions' nurses and critical to the treatment of addictions, I work with area hospitals to present sessions pertaining to the identification, screening, brief interventions and referral to appropriate treatment along with de-escalating techniques when facing the aggressive and challenging patient.  Currently, I maintain a private practice providing treatment to patients with general psychiatric disorders and substance use disorders.  I provide psychopharmacologic and psychotherapeutic interventions including Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT).
