AHDI-APPROVED CEC: 1 Clinical Medicine (CM) per webinar

UPDATE: Our presenter has an overwhelming amount of information to share on the subject of ADDICTION.  She has offered to present it all in a two-part webinar. We have received AHDI approval for an additional 1 CEC (Clinical Medicine) and added another date  –  June 3, 2016 ~ 3 PM Pacific/6 PM Eastern (separate registration).  If you are unable to attend both webinars, a link to the recording(s) will be sent out to all who have registered for specific webinar(s).

Join us for both webinars, jam-packed with essential information on this very misunderstood and mistreated disease.

Addiction has recently been classified as a disease, indicating it should no longer be stigmatized or criminalized. What is addiction and what role does the criminal justice system continue to play? This webinar will address the different types of addiction, genetic markers for addiction, and the effects of addiction on the brain. Jacque Taylor will present the current statistics regarding addiction from the NIH (National Institutes of Health) and NIDA (National Institute on Drug Abuse), as well as the rates of relapse and recidivism. Jacque will also explore successful tools for recovery, including a combination of finding the right detox program, recovery method, and the importance of a good support system and aftercare.

ABOUT THE PRESENTER: Jacque Taylor is an AHDI Fellow, has a Bachelor of Science in Health and Wellness, and recently received her Master of Science in Psychology. Since joining AHDI, Jacque has served in many capacities in local, state, regional, and national areas, and is currently a candidate for District 1 Director on the AHDI National Leadership Board. She is married, a mother, stepmother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, and is a current pet mom of 3 beautiful felines.
