THE SCIENCE OF ADDICTION – REWIRING THE BRAIN
Presented by Dave Reyher, Alvernia University
Unlike what stigma-driven beliefs would say, addiction is not a choice, nor is it a moral failing. We know it is a brain disease, proven by decades of scientific research. Addiction hijacks the brain and changes neural pathways, making it absolutely necessary to rewire the brain in recovery. By further understanding the science of addiction, we gain insight into how the brain is vulnerable to a Substance Use Disorder. Join this workshop and rewire your thoughts about this brain disease.
