About the Event
Join us for our next Public Forum on Wednesday, December 15th at 12 PM MT. We will hear from Dr. Greenblatt about "Functional Medicine for Alcoholism - The Founder of AA's Biggest Regret" Current models for the treatment of alcohol use disorders often focus on behavioral or psychopharmacologic interventions to the exclusion of biologic factors. In this webinar, Dr. Greenblatt will first present an empirically supported rationale for the implementation of functional medicine assessment and treatment strategies in tandem with traditional approaches. Next, he will examine the lesser-known legacy of the founder of Alcoholics Anonymous, Bill W., and how his work with orthomolecular pioneer Abram Hoffer first revealed B vitamin deficiency as a key factor in alcohol use disorder. He will discuss the biological mechanisms of how B vitamins augment and optimize brain health, with a special focus on the brain’s reward pathways. This webinar will provide a fascinating glimpse into Dr. Greenblatt’s functional medicine model for the treatment of addiction and provide a roadmap for navigating alcohol use disorders and bringing patients back into balance.
