Successful Treatment of Methamphetamine Addiction @ Webinar
Dec 18 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

Description: Methamphetamine is a drug of rapid addiction and destruction. This webinar will focus on the impact of methamphetamine and how this powerful drug changes the brain of the user – a process called addiction. Early alcohol and/or drug use combined with non-enriched home and/or community environments can delay the development of the prefrontal cortex. Therefore, many individuals with addiction entering treatment are not candidates for rehabilitation but in need of a habilitative approach to care. Based on cognitive, emotional and attachment needs, practical strategies to challenge prefrontal growth (neurogenesis) will also be reviewed. Lastly, treating methamphetamine is in many ways different than treating alcoholism. This webinar will give participants a clear picture of the process of recovery. Timelines and stages of recovery will be explored noting the pitfalls that must be overcome along the way.

Presenter: Cardwell “C.C.” Nuckols, PhD
