Baptist Health Center for Addiction Recovery

This program will focus on developmental biology as it pertains to the disease of addiction. This will require some knowledge of brain maturation and the effects of early use of drugs and alcohol on this process. An understanding of the contribution of external factors such as family of origin, genetics and trauma is important to appreciate causation.

PROGRAM OBJECTIVES 

  • Review current trends in drug use nationally in adolescents.

  • Discuss the multiple critical periods of brain development during childhood.

  • Describe the vulnerability of adolescents to the disease of addiction.

  • Identify intervention and treatment options.
