Medications Used in Addiction Treatment
With Dr. Ilan Nachim HBSc MSc MD CCFP, Medical Director of Bellwood Health Services.
Everyone has different needs in recovery. Long-term substance use has a disruptive effect on the brain’s neurochemical processes, altering the way pleasure and reward centers work. Withdrawal symptoms and cravings can be particularly challenging barriers for people struggling to overcome dependence on alcohol or drugs. Some patients also have medical complications in addition to their addiction disorder. There are some key medications that can help stabilize patients in detox and early recovery, both complementing and reinforcing ongoing therapy, and making it easier to stay alcohol and drug free.
Session goals & objectives:
- Update on medications used for long term management of substance use disorder
- Understand how medications can be effective in managing cravings and assist in recovery
When: Thursday October 29th 2020 – 12:00 EST, 09:00 PST
Duration: 45 minutes + 10-15 minutes Q&A
