Frontiers of Addiction Treatment

Frontiers of Addiction Treatment

This course presents biological models of addictive disorders and evidence-based treatments of addictions. Topics incorporate new research on the biological basis for genomic subtypes of addiction. Emphasis is on the translation of basic science to the clinic, strategies for pharmacotherapy, incorporating a biologic framework of addiction into addiction psychoeducation and programming, and individualized approaches to the treatment of addictions with comorbid psychiatric diagnoses. Outcomes-based research using clinical electronic databases to enhance follow-up are also discussed as well as the bioethics guiding the assessment and treatment of addiction as an illness.
