Center for Family Life and Recovery, Inc. Presents The Science of Addictio

Have you wondered why you or your loved one can’t just stop? We will take a simple approach to look at addiction as it impacts the brain, its effects on behavior, and how addiction to drugs and alcohol compares to other chronic illnesses. Addiction is a brain disease that can be treated. Today’s science and medicine allows us to see how the brain is affected using brain imagining. We’ll explore various brain scans and the basics of what they mean. Seeing the effects, can help us further understand why addiction is so complex, and why recovery is far bigger than putting down the drink or drug. Join us, in exploring the science of addiction!

This session is open to anyone affected by addiction and looking to learn more!
