Addiction: The Neurobiology and Implications of Treatment

Friday, November 24
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM

This presentation explores how addiction begins and the inter-play between the social, psychological, genetic and opportunistic factors which interact with the brain’s neurobiology - resulting in addiction. Physicians will learn tools to help them transfer this important information to their patient which will in turn aid in helping the patient understand the insidious nature of the disease and the types of treatment required for recovery.

The presentation will offer a unique approach for teaching patients about the nature of the addiction and the implications for treatment.
