5 (1 vote)

Back to Package

In session 2, you will learn that cocaine is not just for the 80’s stock broker anymore! The subcellular pharmacokinetics make this a particularly difficult substance to treat. We will walk through the advanced neuroscience, the animal models that define our predictive understanding, and the behavioral aspects of both the pathology and treatment. While opioids have captured recent headlines, cocaine and its close cousin methamphetamine have been smoldering in the background. Although we do not have medications with good evidence for treatment, we can predict the withdrawal syndrome and the behaviors that drive utilization. With this knowledge we can build better interventions that are both helpful and reimbursed.
