Addiction: tightening the gap between research and practice


Are addiction treatment centers prepared to provide the care necessary for sustainable sobriety? And how can we successfully track those suffering from addiction after they have ‘graduated’ from intensive treatment? We’ll get an update on how the growing addiction treatment industry is keeping up with its related research cousins with A.THOMAS MCLELLAN, Ph.D CEO and co-founder of the Treatment Research Institute and an experienced substance abuse researcher; ADAM C. BROOKS, Ph.D., Senior Scientist at the Treatment Research Institute; and ANNE M. FLETCHER, MS, RD. a medical writer whose latest book is “Inside Rehab: The Surprising Truth about Addiction Treatment and How to Get Help that Works.”
