TOP REVIEWS FROM THE ADDICTED BRAIN
A great and informative course. Very clear and interesting! I would have appreciated a bit more if it discussed more tips to help prevent/deal-with drug abuse or addiction. Thank you for the course!
This course is truly wonderful, many intellectual mind-opening surprises... for example I almost fell out of my chair when I learned of vaccinations development effort to counter addiction.
The course taught me a lot about how brain gets addicted, What happens in our body after taking drugs, why the test and screen for drugs designed in particular way, etc.
The course comprehensively deals with how the drugs affect the brain it also deals with history of drug abuse, its treatment and prevention. The modules are precise and interesting .
