Alcoholism and Drug Addiction
Alcoholism and drug addiction are chronic, complex conditions characterized by a compulsive and harmful pattern of substance use, often leading to severe physical, psychological, and social consequences. Treatment approaches for these disorders typically involve a combination of behavioral therapies, medication-assisted treatment, and support to help individuals achieve and maintain recovery. Recent research in the field of alcoholism and drug addiction has revealed promising developments, including the effectiveness of innovative medications in reducing cravings and preventing relapse. Furthermore, studies have underscored the importance of personalized treatment strategies, tailoring interventions to individual needs. Advances in neuroimaging have deepened our understanding of the neural mechanisms underlying addictive behaviors, offering potential insights for more targeted interventions. This session is planned to address essential facets related to substance use disorders and their management.
