#4455 Based on the latest research, Medical Aspects of Substance Use Disorders is an educational video that provides information on the neurobiology of addiction, or how alcohol and other drugs affect the brain and central nervous system. Using the simplest terms, this video explains why, because of changes in brain chemistry, it is so difficult to overcome a severe substance use disorder.
This highly engaging video works well in these settings and situations:
- individual and group sessions
- inpatient and outpatient services in a wide variety of settings, including treatment centers, correctional facilities, and mental health clinics
- parent education programs
- family counseling
- staff in-services
Discussions are led by addiction medical experts Drs. Marvin Seppala and Joseph Lee from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation and certain engaging graphics to make a complicated subject matter much easier to understand. And because the video has segments with natural break points, it can be viewed in its entirety or however it fits your schedule.
Medical Aspects of Substance Use Disorders comes complete with reproducible fact sheets, a participant worksheet, and a facilitator guide on CD-ROM (318 pages total of print materials) to complement and reinforce the messages in the video. Running time for DVD is 355 minutes with numerous breakpoints for instructional purposes. Copyright 2016. $295.00. SPECIAL: 5 programs for $1,379.00.
