Addiction Psychopharmacology Made Easy
Objectives of the Presentation:
1. Understand the general action of drugs/medications/chemicals in the brain.
2. Review the differences in drugs that risk the development of dependence and those that do not.

Do you sometimes wonder if medications that your client has been prescribed could cause
problems, even relapse? Do your client’s express confusion about what they are taking, and
why a medication was prescribed? Are you confident in your role as a client advocate to
