Lecture Overview

"THE WAR ON DRUGS"! We've all heard this term. But what kind of connotations do those words carry for the patients in our care who are struggling with addiction? Geoff Ahern continues his passionate crusade on the views and treatment of addiction in this informative talk. Learn about how our war on some drugs started, and why these beliefs persist today.
