Scientific Sessions


Session 01: Addiction Drugs and Abuse

Addiction is defined as a constantly persistent, relapsing mental disorder. It is considered a mental disorder because drugs change the function of the brain and its structure . These brain changes can be long-lasting, and can lead to the harmful behaviors .Most abused drugs produce intense feelings of pleasure. The initial decision to take drugs is typically voluntary. The common characteristic of all addictive substances is that they activate the brain’s reward system, either directly or indirectly. The positive and negative consequences of substance use vary greatly depending on the specific drug being used. The primary features of substance use disorders are a mixture of cognitive, behavioral, and physiological symptoms.

Addiction is an insidious disease. Your recovery process begins with you initiating professional treatment.Once you have fully committed yourself to the treatment of your addiction, you are in the second stage of recovery, known as early abstinence. During the early abstinence stage, your trained addiction counselor will begin to teach you the coping skills needed to lead a clear lifestyle.After 90 days of continual abstinence from drugs or alcohol, you move to the third stage of recovery maintaining abstinence. If you are in a residential treatment facility, now is the time you move to the outpatient counseling phase of your recovery program.Once you’ve remained clean and clear headed for approximately five years, you enter the fourth and final stage of recovery advanced recovery. At this point, you take all of the tools and skills you learned throughout your counseling and put them to use living a satisfying and fulfilling substance-free life.

Session 08:Self Help for Cure

Self help is the act of helping or ameliorate without depending onothers. For many people it involves joining a fellowship of people who are dealing with a similar problem. These groups do not rely on professional guidance but instead the members support each other. Examples of self help treatments would include: 12 Step programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous are the most well known of all the self help groups. Self Management and Recovery Training (SMART) which aims to make use of the latest scientific research. Rational Recovery emphasizes the need for each individual to take charge of their own life. This approach does not promote support group attendance because it may reinforce the idea that the individual is an addict. There are many books that claim to help people give up their addiction without any formal treatment or help from recovery groups.
