Course Overview:
The recent surge of opioid addiction and deaths from overdose are a national crisis. The consequences of addiction are numerous; it results in myriad health problems, harms and disrupts families and other relationships, and can leave individuals isolated, depressed and even suicidal. Addictions can lead to vulnerability to comorbid disorders and comorbid disorders can sometimes lead to addictions, making treatment of either condition particularly complex. Individuals with an addiction often deny the extent of the problem and resist treatment altogether. Despite all of these difficulties, countless Americans confront and overcome their addictions every year, often with the help of healthcare professionals and formal treatment programs. McLean Hospital, the largest psychiatric hospital of Harvard Medical School, is pleased to offer this annual conference bringing together some of the foremost authorities in the addiction field. Topics will include new, evidence-based treatments, the nuances of treating comorbid disorders along with addiction, and special populations. We are honored to have a prestigious and accomplished faculty. Smaller, breakout sessions each afternoon will allow for in-depth exploration of topic areas in an interactive and stimulating format that should enhance learning and skill-building.
