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.
How Drug Abuse Affects the Brain and Alters Behavior Are Key Questions Driving Division’s Work is about how a compound that appears promising for treating cocaine relapse is wending its way along a chain of discovery and trial that links NIDA’s various Divisions.
Research in Brief: Medical Care During Addiction Treatment Reduces Hospital Use explains how on-site delivery of primary care reduces emergency department (ED) visits and inpatient hospital stays among adult patients in methadone maintenance or in long-term residential treatment programs.
Checkup System Catches Relapse Early and Facilitates Return to Treatment describes how by supplementing regular recovery checkups with motivational interviewing and active linking to treatment can get relapsing patients back into treatment sooner.
All three articles are contained in one PDF.
