NC Museum of Natural Sciences Science Cafe: Drug Addiction: From the Brain to Society and Back Again

Meet in Room 102 Sullivan Hall
Thursday, January 11
6:15 PM
How does a simple molecule like heroin cause so much destruction of people, families, and communities? “Addiction” is a word that is often used casually…we’re “addicted” to our phones, to chocolate, etc. But, what is an addiction in the clinical sense? How did the current epidemic of opiate addiction emerge from prescribed pain medication? This talk will explore the biological, psychological, and sociological causes of addiction. If we understand the complex array of causes of addiction, then we will begin to see solutions that we can all contribute to. http://naturalsciences.org/calendar/event/science-cafe-drug-addiction/. There are 14 spaces available for this event and advance registration is required by emailing Alex Hsain at hahsain@ncsu.edu.
