Introduction to Addiction


with Jeff Goldsmith


Brief overiew of the biological, psychological, and sociofamilial dimensions as they influence the development of addiction and the recovery process.  I taught this course last fall, 2020, on Zoom.  I covered material for alcohol, cannabis, opiod, and stimulant use.  The classes began with 30 minutes of didactic and ended with an hour of discussion.  I am an Addiction Medicine doctor who ran fellowships for almost 20 years in Cincinnati.  I have been certified as a sub specialist in Addiction Medicine, 2018 the last time by the American Board of Preventive Medicine.  I was President-elect, President, and Past President of the American Society of Addiction Medicine from 2013-2019.
