This week on the Down East Journal, we speak with an East Carolina University psychiatrist about a new, non-invasive treatment being used for people living with depression.  And, New Bern author Nicholas Sparks hopes this week’s release of “The Longest Ride” will become this tenth number one New York Times best seller.  Plus, we talk about the mission of the Coastal Coalition for Substance Abuse and Prevention and their public education event set for Monday, Sept. 23rd.
