Neurobehavioral challenges in recovery: Exploring their breadth & treatment implications

3rd International Conference and Exhibition on Addiction Research & Therapy

Sara J Nixon

Keynote: J Addict Res Ther

DOI: 10.4172/2155-6105.S1.014

Abstract
Drawing on her own as well as others work, the author will provide an overview of current research addressing dysregulation and impairment in neurobehavioral systems associated with chronic substance abuse. Within this discussion, she will present provocative data regarding a common comorbidity among treatment-seekers, nicotine dependence and examine its acute and chronic effects. As a part of this overview, she will explore a critical, but understudied, component of neurobehavior, emotional processing; describing developing work designed to concurrently explore the two domains. Finally, the author will discuss developing treatment interventions applying our understanding of these deficits to enhance treatment compliance and long-term outcome
