About the Course:
This course is based on three NIDA Notes articles. NIDA Notes is a large collection of brief relevant articles focusing on current drug abuse treatment evidence.
Behavioral Problems Related to Maternal Smoking During Pregnancy Manifest Early in Childhood explains how researchers find probable precursors of adolescent conduct disorders in the behavior of toddlers and schoolchildren which is related to maternal smoking during pregnancy.
Endorphin Derivative Inhibits Reward From Morphine and Nicotine in Rats describes how recent studies suggest therapeutic potential for glycyl-glutamine in opiate and nicotine addiction.
Standard Treatments Help Depressed Smokers Quit explains how smoking cessation interventions that are effective in the general population also help for depressed smokers.
All three articles are contained in one PDF.
