About the Course:
Addiction has been treated with ignorance. Now it’s being treated with science. HBO created the groundbreaking documentary series “Addiction,” bringing to light fascinating medical and scientific advances that have redefined the way we understand this disease. The nation’s top addiction experts persuasively argue that the time has come for the blame to stop and the healing to begin. In-depth descriptions of the way the disease works and accounts of its impact on families across the country are combined with specific advice on how to find the right treatment.
This course is based on the book, Addiction: Why Can’t They Just Stop?: New Knowledge. New Treatments. New Hope. created by John Hoffman (Editor), Susan Froemke (Editor), and Various Contributors
