Highs and Lows: Getting off the Rollercoaster of Adolescent Addictions

Dr. Peter Selby, MBBS, CCFP, FCFP, MHSc, Dip ABAM, FASAM 


Addiction is an equal opportunity developmental brain disorder affecting people from all walks of life. It begins in adolescence and can progressively worsen over time if left untreated. For a substantial minority substance use becomes a major problem interfering with functioning at home, school, work and/ or play. It can even lead to premature death from accidents and overdose. Moreover, addiction is a family disease.  The suffering and pain is experience by the user and their family and friends. However, with appropriate treatment people do recover and can lead very productive lives. This interactive workshop will help attendees  understand why people get addicted, how to tell when use is becoming an addiction, how to talk so the person can hear and will take action and finally review what treatment is available from early interventions to intensive treatment especially when there are concurrent disorders.
