Lindsay Lohan. George Michael. Michael Jackson.   Anna Nicole Smith.   More and more high profile names have seemingly fallen victim to the new American epidemic: prescription drug abuse. A psychiatrist specializing in psychopharmacology and an assistant professor of psychiatry at NYU School of Medicine, Julie Holland, M.D., author of the national bestseller WEEKENDS AT BELLEVUE: Nine Years on the Night Shift at the Psych ER (A Bantam Books trade paperback; October 26, 2010; $16.00), grasps the depth of the problem like few can, often giving her expert testimony on national media such as the Today show, Good Morning America and CNN.   Dr. Holland is not surprised by the recent barrage of drug related incidents, having spent her entire adult life insatiably educating herself on the subject of insanity and its treatment. With WEEKENDS AT BELLEVUE, she provides an unvarnished look at life in the psych ER, recounting stories from her vast case files that are alternately terrifying, tragically comic, and profoundly movingDr. Julie Holland has spent her adult life investigating drugs.  At the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Holland majored in the "Biological Basis of Behavior," a series of courses combining the study of psychology and neural sciences, with a concentration in drugs and the brain, or psychopharmacology.  During her college years, she authored an extensive research paper on MDMA (ecstasy), resulting in three television appearances.
