There will be interesting insights into the some of the more recent breakthroughs in science and addiction at Toranfield House’s upcoming NEAR conference.

Prof Carlton Erickson is a research Scientist, distinguished Professor of Pharmacology and Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies, as well as serving as Director of the Addiction Science Research & Education Centre in the College of Pharmacy at the University of Texas. He is a hugely popular international speaker, drawing on more than 30 years’ experience working in this field and will speak at the upcoming Neuroscience and Evidence based practices for Addiction & Recovery (NEAR) conference in the Ritz Carlton in Enniskerry, Co Wicklow, in November.

Prof Erickson believes that the quality of addiction science now compares very favourably with research on the causes and treatments for other ailments such as cancer, heart disease and other life-threatening diseases. Extensive research on addiction has been ongoing for more than 20 years in at least four colleges and several departments at the University of Texas in Austin, as well as its collaborative efforts working alongside many other academic institutions around the world.
