The goal of this program is to improve knowledge of the neuroscience behind substance use and abuse. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Describe the evolutionary and physiologic origins of behaviors relevant to addiction.
2. Explain how addiction, dependency, tolerance, and withdrawal develop from substance use.
3. Prevent triggers associated with cravings and relapse in patients with history of substance abuse.
4. Identify how specific substances produce and reinforce self-administration.
5. Assess emerging trends in substance use.
The original programs were presented by Stanley D. Glick, MD, PhD, Professor and Director, Center for Neuropharmacology and Neuroscience, Albany Medical College, Albany, NY.
