(1B) Addiction as a Chronic Disease
Earn 1 Hour Category 1-B CME Credit
Presenter Stephen Armstron Wyatt, DO

Description:
Addiction has been understood as a chronic disease for a number of years. This is evident by the; clear genetic and environmental precursors, evidence-based screening tools, substantiated neurobiological adaptations, a predictable course of the illness, and evidence-based treatments. Yet too often it is not addressed like other chronic illnesses. Primary care providers have an opportunity to play a significant role in rethinking how long term recovery can be addressed and supported.

This recorded webinar will outline the chronic disease model of addiction and various ways primary care providers can play a role in helping patients maintain their recovery.
