Please take a look at a fascinating talk on the effects of casual marijuana smoking, given by Alicia Farrell, Ph.D., of Clearview Consulting in Old Saybrook, CT, at the July 25 Shoreline Clinical Networking Breakfast hosted by Aware Recovery Care, Project Courage and Newport Academy.
Dr. Farrell discusses the high levels of THC in today's pot and cites two recent studies on the changes to the brain it causes in even casual users. She offers pragmatic steps that Therapists and parents can take to help young people understand the health risks of smoking marijuana.
To celebrate the launch of our innovative model of addiction care, Aware Recovery Care, Inc.℠, hosted a reception at the Madison Beach Hotel in Madison, Connecticut, where we are based. Invited guests included leading Addiction Psychiatrists and other Physicians who specialize in addiction.
