Functional & Integrative Medicine for Addiction

A Course by James Greenblatt, MD & Arwen Podesta, MD (4 Hours)
This course, co-taught by Dr. James Greenblatt and Dr. Arwen Podesta, examines the biology underlying the phenomenon of addiction and integrative functional medicine strategies for addiction treatment.
