Successful Treatment of Methamphetamine Addiction

Location: Webinar

Methamphetamine is a drug of rapid addiction and destruction.

This free 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.
