Re-wiring the addicted brain

PRESENTED ON JUN 01, 2018
IN ASHEVILLE @ VOL 19

We explore the understanding that addiction is a brain problem, not a moral failing or character flaw. That addiction and associated disorders of learning and behavior can be effectively remediated through re-wiring of neural pathways and networks.
