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.
