The 2013 Addictions and Their Treatment course was offered in conjunction with AAAP’s 24th Annual Meeting and Symposium.  The syllabus and DVD are sold separately but may be purchased at the same time.  The syllabus compiles the entire course presentation slides in a hardcopy booklet and the DVD is comprised of the slides and lecture audio.
