Addiction is a neurological-biological-behavioral chronic health condition. This webinar integrates our current scientific understanding of addiction with evidence-based practices to support addiction treatment along a continuum of care. The presenter will focus on cognitive behavioral, mindfulness, and acceptance and commitment therapeutic techniques for treating substance use disorders (SUDs).
