"Does Addiction Treatment Work?": Dawn Farm.

  community member   < less

"Does Addiction Treatment Work?" will be presented by Dr Carl Christensen, MD, PhD, D-FASAM. Recent publications claim to define research-supported definitive truths about the root causes of addiction and efficacy of treatment modalities; however, conclusions are conflicting and have been subject to divergent interpretations. Feel confused? Dr. Christensen will review the recent criticisms of treatment for addiction including Twelve Step, residential, and medication assisted therapy, the scientific studies that do and do not support their use and other controversial issues. This program is part of the Dawn Farm Education Series. All programs are free and open to anyone interested. Registration is not required
