Description

Findings from decades of NIH research on alcoholism and addiction rarely find their way into clinical addiction treatment programs. Consequently, this session’s purpose is to provide accurate, scientifically excellent information about alcohol and drug addiction treatment which can allow addicts to control cravings and reduce the physical brain injury caused by addiction, in order to inspire hope in the attendee.  This session can provide valuable information for the entire court team and treatment providers including those working with clients with limited treatment resources.
