Course Description

It is estimated that 22 million Americans suffer from an addiction to alcohol or drugs and approximately 20% of all Americans smoke cigarettes. The consequences of addiction are numerous; it results in a myriad of health problems, harms and disrupts families and other relationships, and can leave individuals isolated, depressed, and even suicidal. Addictions can lead to vulnerability to comorbid disorders and comorbid disorders can sometimes lead to addictions, making treatment of either condition particularly complex. Individuals with an addiction often deny the extent of the problem and resist treatment altogether. Despite all of these difficulties, countless Americans confront and overcome their addictions every year, often with the help of health care professionals and formal treatment programs.

McLean Hospital, the largest psychiatric hospital of Harvard Medical School, is pleased to offer this groundbreaking conference bringing together some of the foremost authorities in the addiction field. Topics will include stress and addiction; new, evidence-based treatments; early detection and intervention; the nuances of treating comorbid disorders along with addiction; and special populations. We are honored to have such a prestigious and accomplished faculty. Many of them are cutting-edge researchers who have developed new, evidence-based pharmacologic and behavioral treatments as well as integrated treatment programs for substance abuse and comorbid disorders. Attendees will have the opportunity to not only hear stimulating lectures from these masters in the field, but will also have ample opportunity for personal interaction with them in panel discussions.
