Special Colloquium Sponsored by the Graduate School

Despite progress in the development of empirically supported treatments for substance use disorder, post treatment rates of relapse remain high. While advances in the identification of neural and behavioral based mechanisms contributing to poor treatment response have grown exponentially, the translation of this knowledge into efficacious treatments has lagged behind. The
current talk will discuss the utility of applying a translational research perspective in the treatment of addiction, drawing on specific examples such as reinforcement-based mechanisms and behavioral activation.
