Webinar: At greater risk: The intersection of ACEs and addiction

The evidence continues to mount demonstrating a strong correlation between adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and increased risk of substance use disorder and other co-occurring mental health issues in adulthood. Join Hazelden Betty Ford addiction psychiatrist Stephen Delisi, MD, to take a closer look at specific adverse childhood experiences implicated in chronic illness. Dr. Delisi will review emerging research, discuss the influence of ACEs on neurodevelopment, provide related data on ACEs and the increased risk of recurrence in opioid use disorder, and how trauma-informed care may reduce that risk.
