Let’s Start Talking about Pre-Addiction for Social Workers

SPS Webinar

June 27, 2023 (1 – 2 pm ET)

Presenter:David L. Hussey, Ph.D., LISW-S

CEs:1 Substance Use Disorder

This webinar discusses the recent JAMA Psychiatry commentary, "Time to Start Talking about Pre-Addiction," by Dr. Nora Volkaw, Director of the National Institute of Drug Abuse. Dr. Volkaw and her colleagues discuss the utility of pre-addiction as a clinical construct to better detect the early stages of substance use disorder. In light of the substance use crisis that our nation is facing, and the prominent role that social workers play in the identification and treatment of behavioral health and substance use disorders, this timely webinar will examine the potential implications of developing more formalized pre-addiction criteria.
