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.

Able-Minded: Return to Work and Accommodations for Workers on Disability Leave for Mental DisordersAttridge, Mark; Wallace, Scott, Ph.D. (Human Solutions, 2010-07)The 2010 report brings the most current and empirically validated perspectives to this very important issue. Mental health disability is the fastest growing health-related disability in Canada, and has claimed this title for over 20 years. These cases can be complex but typically respond well to appropriate treatment, coordinated stakeholder actions, and employer and organization support. Our hope is that this report will assist employers by illuminating the many advances in this area in recent years, and help organizations to be proactive and/or respond effectively when the need arises.
