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.

Hidden Hazards: The Business Response to Addictions in the WorkplaceAttridge, Mark; Wallace, Scott, Ph.D. (Human Solutions, 2009-07)The 2009 annual report tackles some of the myths and long-held beliefs about addictions and their impact on workplaces across Canada. We distill the key findings concerning addictions and present these in a manner that can lead to a clear understanding of the issues for HR/Benefits practitioners and other business leaders interested in contributing to building a healthy and safe workplace. In the tradition of previous reports, we review numerous empirical studies with an emphasis on Canadian data when available. We offer this report to our customers and other key stakeholders in an effort to bring the most current and empirically validated perspectives to this very important issue. Our hope is that this report will assist you by summarizing key elements on addictions which may prompt you to take action such as creating or updating a substance use policy, initiating an awareness campaign at all levels of your organization, or providing information about available support services.
