The live professional training program on The Neuroscience of Addiction and the Role of Medications in Treatment and Recovery is presented by Mita M. Johnson, Ed.D.

As our understanding of the impact of addictions on the brain and body progresses, so does our need for integrated, science-driven practices that help a person functionally recover. Specifically, there has been much confusion about the types of medications available to help a client recover and thrive, as well as many myths about the role of medications in treatment and recovery.
This programwill focus on dispelling myths - bridging science and practice as we identify practices that treat the whole person, including the integrated use of specific medications.
