NIAAA Webinar: Using New Definitions and Tools to Support Alcohol Recovery

Washington, DC, United States,
Tuesday, December 6, 2022 - 12:00 PM to 1:15 PM

Please join the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) for a free, interactive webinar about support for alcohol recovery

Each year in the United States, alcohol contributes to more than 200 health conditions and about 99,000 deaths. Alcohol misuse remains a significant public health challenge.

Research on recovery from alcohol use disorder (AUD) is an important priority for the NIAAA. NIAAA-supported research efforts have led to advancements that range from  broad improvements in understanding recovery to the development of practical tools to treat AUD and support individuals in recovery.

This webinar will present NIAAA’s work on two critical areas:

NIAAA Program Director Dr. Brett Hagman and Harvard Medical School Professor Dr. John Kelly will discuss the new definition of recovery from AUD. NIAAA Program Director Dr. Laura Kwako and University of Washington Acting Instructor Dr. Helen Jack will go on to discuss the HPCR.

You can RSVP to dana [dot] west [at] icf [dot] com by Friday, December 2, 2022.
