Does Addiction Treatment Work?

When: Tue., Feb. 20, 7:30-9 p.m.

Presented by Dr. Carl Christensen, MD, Ph.D., D-FASAM. Recent publications purport 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. Dr. Christensen will review treatment for addiction including Twelve Step, residential, and medication assisted therapy, scientific studies that do and do not support their use and other controversial issues. The presentation will include a short demonstration of naloxone resuscitation. Part of the Dawn Farm Education Series. Free, open to all.
