The latest webinar in the University of Michigan Addiction Center’s “Mind Matters” series provides an overview of various addiction therapies

Does addiction treatment really work? What types of options are there for getting well? What are the best ways to receive help and support when you’re in recovery?

These are among the questions addressed in the webinar “Addiction Treatment and Therapy,” staged by the University of Michigan Addiction Center as part of its “Mind Matters” series. “Addiction Treatment and Therapy” is presented by Anne Fernandez, PhD, who is an assistant professor in the university’s Department of Psychiatry and a practicing clinical psychiatrist with U-M Addiction Treatment Services.
