The nature of addiction and drug rehabilitation
Annals of General Psychiatry volume 9, Article number: S15 (2010)
The current bibliography suggests that drug rehabilitation schemes that are based on psychological and social parameters are efficient. While most researchers consider dependency to substances as symptomatic, there is a lot of controversy concerning the nature and - consequently - the definition of addiction.
The presentation will try to discuss the various points of view, taking into consideration the most recent research in the fields of mental and social health, neuroscience and therapeutic practice.
