New England Summer School of Addiction and Prevention Studies 2020: Neurobiology of Addiction

This workshop is for new counselors who need to understand the role that brain chemistry plays in addictions. We will begin with a review of brain structure and basic brain chemistry. Then we will discuss the effects of substance abuse and the progression that chemical dependency has on the brain. Implications for treatment and client education will be discussed. Current and emerging brain chemistry research will be highlighted. Several small group exercises will allow for practical applications to be practiced that you can bring back to your clients and colleagues.
