This workshop is designed to bring health care practitioners and researchers together through lectures, small group discussions and knowledge exchange on addiction and impulsive decision-making.
The meeting’s ultimate goal is to enhance the delivery of scientifically-based treatments to drug abuse patients. The specific aim is to present and discuss current scientific findings and their significance for current and potential future treatment.
After every presentation, there will be small group discussions followed by full group knowledge exchange and debate. Please come prepared to share your opinions, case studies, and experiences.
