This presentation is designed to help service providers develop a basic understanding of the current thinking regarding the neurobiology of addiction, especially with regard to neurotransmitter modification, neuroplasticity during drug use, and possible functional brain changes as a result of chronic drug use. Clinical interventions with chronic drug users are discussed in light of this framework.
