He has frequently been interviewed by many national and international television programs including Good Morning America, 20/20, CNN, ABC World News Tonight with Diane Sawyer, The CBS Early Show, The CBS Evening News with Katie Couric, ABC News Primetime, HLN, Al-Jazeera America, UK's SkyNews and the international RTL Network.  Highlights of a few of his appearances can be seen on this page or on his demo reel.

Dr. Manejwala enjoys opportunities to make innovations in healthcare, addictions and brain and behavior science more accessible to mainstream audiences.  He is often consulted when there is breaking news that relates to addiction or mental health.  Celebrity overdoses, pending legislature related to substance use or other addictions, behavioral addictions (including obesity), new medication approvals or addiction related research are a few of the areas where his comments are sought.  When journalists or segment producers want the insider perspective on drug counseling from a substance abuse counselor or psychiatrist's perspective, they often turn to Dr. Manejwala (click here to download a one-pager of story ideas).

Several book authors have also cited him and he is the author of a best-selling book about cravings that explains what we crave, where cravings come from and how to control cravings which has been translated into several languages.

His radio experience includes an interview on medications for alcoholism on Minnesota Public Radio, and another MPR interview on prescription drug abuse.  He appeared as a guest on many radio programs including the Dr. Susan Blank show and VoiceAmerica.
