ADDICTION BORN OUT OF ACES AND THE RETURN OF HOPE

Dr. Susie Wiet


The downstream effect of childhood trauma has been well documented regarding the biological and psychosocial impacts. This presentation will highlight the neurobiological changes associated with ACEs that function as a "primer" for the onset of addiction and related behaviors. It will conclude with principles for influencing these same pathways that assist with restoration of the mind and health.

Susie Wiet, MD is an integrative developmental psychiatrist with expertise in holistic treatment of trauma-addiction, dual diagnosis, and complex psychiatric disorders. She has received many accolades for teaching, service, initiative, advocacy and excellence of care.
