Elevating Addiction Treatment Skills and Practice through the Neurobiological Advances in Addiction
December 21, 2022 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
This webinar will explore the neuroscience of addiction, the impact of policy and historical treatment approaches and an exploration of the dynamics of stigma and discrimination as primary barriers to addiction care. This webinar will set a base of shared understanding that will facilitate the introduction and implementation of other evidenced based practices in the areas of trauma informed care (TIC), recovery oriented systems of care (ROSC), and harm reduction.
1. Explore ways to enhance traditional treatment models and clinical approaches to adapt to the
most current neuroscience research to treat substance use disorders in more effective
2. Learn how understanding addiction as a chronic health condition can enhance the
implementation and utilization of evidenced based interventions, such as trauma informed care (TIC)
and recovery-oriented systems of care (ROSC), to treat SUDs while
supporting personal recovery and prevention.
3. Utilize our understanding of the neuroscience of addiction to address and remove
treatment barriers such as bias and discrimination towards people with
substance use disorders and improve outcomes.
