In the ever-changing field of substance use disorder, being on the cusp of the latest evidence-based practices and treatment models is key to providing patients with the highest quality and most effective care.

Caron Treatment Centers, in conjunction with Penn State Hershey College of Medicine, invite you to join us for this complimentary, informative day that will showcase our cutting-edge research and how it can be advantageous to you in your profession.  Our sessions will provide a closer look at the brain in treating and predicting relapse, including:

  • The use of brain-based biomarkers and brain imaging in addiction treatment.

  • How an “animal model of addiction” proves the vulnerability created in the brain when introduced to certain substances and how the brain changes over time during the course of addiction.

  • The autonomic aspects of addiction, and how bio-behavioral interventions, such as biofeedback, can be used to predict and prevent relapse.

  • The importance of data-driven outcomes will be discussed and an overview of how technology can be used in effective aftercare programming will be outlined.

As part of this event, you will have the opportunity to tour Caron’s new Healthcare Professionals Program Unit on the Caron Pennsylvania campus. 

We hope you will join us for what will prove to be an engaging and illuminating event!
