Event description

Description

Vaping has been all over the news and soon marijuana will be legal in Illinois. What should parents know?

Despite vaping and marijuana being highly prevalent in high schools, there is a gap between public understanding of these drug trends and the medical knowledge published in peer-reviewed journals.

Join Dr. Aaron Weiner, Director of Addiction Services with Linden Oaks Behavioral Health, as he answers some of the most common questions surrounding these products, and provides a basic, science-consistent understanding that can be used when having conversations with youth and young adults on these topics.

Dr. Weiner, PhD, ABPP is a board-certified Psychologist and the Director of Addiction Services at Linden Oaks Behavioral Health. He earned his doctorate from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and completed his fellowship in Addiction Psychology at the VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System. He is a strong advocate for evidence-based care in treating chemical dependency and behavioral addictions, as well as a proponent of integrating behavioral health services into medical settings. Dr. Weiner is passionate about educating both healthcare providers and the general public about the nature and treatment of addiction —helping medical teams provide compassionate, competent care, and empowering patients to be informed consumers about their addiction treatment options. Dr. Weiner is a Board member for the Society of Addiction Psychology, and serves on the Science Advisory Board for Smart Approaches to Marijuana.
