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.
Brain Activity Patterns Signal Risk of Relapse to Methamphetamine
explains how methamphetamine abusers who relapse after treatment appear to make decisions using different brain regions than those who remain abstinent.
Community-Based Treatment Benefits Methamphetamine Abusers
reveals how methamphetamine abusers can achieve long-term abstinence with the help of standard community-based drug abuse treatment.
Mood Disorders in Methamphetamine Abusers Linked to Changes in Brain Metabolism
describes how methamphetamine abuse and addiction do NOT exist in isolation, and this study suggests that associated depression and anxiety also must be addressed in treatment.
All three articles are contained in the same PDF
