The Addicted Brain

This training event will award 2 contact hours for LMSW/LCSW with the NYSED State Board for Social Work and 2 contact hours for LMHC and LMFT with the NYSED State Board for Mental Health Practitioners and 2 CASAC renewal credits*.

Addiction touches us all. This workshop will focus on addiction to drugs and other behaviors. It will describe what happens in the brain, how substances are processed, how neurons respond and how this information helps us work towards recovery. We will review how different drugs affect brain functioning and will discuss how these brain alterations may be remedied.
