This course examines the behavioral characteristics of addiction, drug- and learning- induced brain changes, the psychology of choice, obsessive compulsive disorder and its neural substrates, and the distinction between voluntary and involuntary behavior. It explores the psychological, social, legal, and situational factors involved in drug usage, its effect on human behavior and criminal activity, and critical issues in drug control initiatives.
Academic Supervisor : Francisco Chelos Lopez

Academic Supervisor : Francisco Chelos Lopez

Treatment of Addictions
This course answers the question of “what really works in the treatment of addictions?” It reviews the best practices currently known in the treatment of addictions from the beginning steps (goal setting, contracting, and choosing a treatment modality) up till the final goal (when and how to terminate treatment). A variety of interventions in the treatment of substance abuse and addictions are reviewed in terms of their effectiveness.
