Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) Awareness 2022 Virtual Conference Series - Addiction Across Generations: One Family’s Experience
Interweaving a personal narrative with research, Jason Snyder will tell the story of how addiction has affected his immediate and extended family. He will discuss the evidence supporting genetics, environment and mental health as underlying causes of addiction in his family. Recounting his two brothers’ deaths, his own recovery from addiction and the impact of addiction on his extended family and subsequent generations, Jason will offer suggestions for using this information more broadly in treatment, prevention and intervention efforts.
Healthcare providers in internal medicine, family practice, and pain management will benefit from this course.
- Describe the role of genetics, environment & mental health as contributing factors in substance use.
- Describe the ramifications of familial addiction on subsequent generations.
- Develop strategies to help families manage shame and guilt associated with addiction.
