Workshop Description:

Over recent years, there has been a great deal of new research viewing addiction as a brain disease. This presentation will review the current empirical neurobiological aspects of addiction, including the effects on the brain, genetics, the adolescent brain, and gender differences. The nature of cravings will be explained using the “pleasure pathway” and the “hijacking” of the brain leaving the person out of control. An overview of the pharmacological treatments of addiction will also be discussed.

In addition, the importance of integrating this information into the complex holistic assessment of the client will be examined. This will be presented in a case study of Prince to assist attendees in critical thinking regarding the evidence for and against addiction being a disease, as well as the importance of viewing the client from a bio-psycho-social-spiritual view.

 

Learning Objectives:

After attending this intermediate-level workshop, participants will be able to:

(1) Discuss the latest research on addiction and the brain including the adolescent brain and the “pleasure pathway.”

(2) Describe the new pharmacological treatments for addictions.

(3) Discuss the importance of a holistic biological, psychological, social, political, and spiritual assessment when conceptualizing clients with a substance use disorder.
