The Opioid Epidemic and The Neurobiology of Addiction

Over the past decade, drug overdose has claimed thousands of lives, torn apart countless families and decimated communities across the country. This devastating impact has been largely driven by the opiate epidemic. This course will describe numerous factors contributing to the current drug epidemic, including the historical context, as well as the biological underpinning of the addictive process. These mechanisms will help explain the pernicious and seemingly irreparable process of addiction. At the same time, several pharmacological treatment options have developed from our understanding of addiction which all clinicians should understand in order to help change the tide of the current crisis.
