Addiction Craving and Addiction Memory: Clearing a Path to Recovery
AbstractIn this address, Dr. Paul Earley presents the neurophysiology of an important and often overlooked component of the recovery experience: Addiction Memory. When a patient begins the journey into recovery from an addiction of any kind, effective cravings management is critical for sustaining that recovery. Despite this fact, addiction treatment does not do enough to train addicts and alcoholics how to manage their cravings. Learn about the different sub-types of addiction cravings and new techniques for cravings management. This presentation provides a deeper understanding of how the experience of addiction entrains neural circuits to promote relapse and, most importantly, how to rewire the addicted brain to prevent relapse.

Workplace Mental Health: The Quiet Crisis in CanadaAttridge, Mark; Thompson, Craig, M.Ed., M.B.A. (2008-05-29)Highlights from a 30-page report from 2008 written for a business audience that digests key findings and action strategies from over 80 research studies. PROBLEM: Many studies show that mental health and alcohol/drug conditions are common in Canadian society and yet most cases are under-diagnosed and under-treated. Research also shows that workers with untreated mental health conditions are costly to employers. THE SOLUTION: Other research documents that available treatments for mental health are both clinically- and cost-effective. There are proven strategies that employers can use to encourage the proper identification, treatment and prevention of mental health conditions. These strategies occur at three levels: the employee, the workplace, and the organization. THE CHALLENGE: Workplace mental health issues are important to business success and they can be effectively addressed. More employers need to adopt existing strategies and services.
