• Addiction Part A: Understanding Addiction

Speaker: Lydia Bartholow, DNP, PMHNP  This workshop takes the participant on an overview of most things related to addiction and substance use disorders. We review how trauma makes us neurobiologically vulnerable to developing use disorders, as well as why a trauma informed approach is necessary within the world of addiction. We review the role of stigma in the treatment of addiction, and how it informs public health policy. The common substances of misuse are described (emphasis on opioids), and how finding and addressing the root causes of addiction in the neurobiology of trauma can offer a new approach to treatment.
