    Toward Personalizing treatment for depression

    in Psychology

    Speakers: Patrick J. McGrath M.D., Co-Director of the Depression Evaluation Service at the New York State Psychiatric Institute/Columbia University Medical Center and Maria Oquendo M.D. Vice Chair for Education & Training and Director of Psychiatric Residency Program at the New York State Psychiatric Institute/Columbia University Medical Center


    Description: Dr. Patrick J. McGrath and Dr. Maria Oquendo will discuss what we have learned so far in efforts to tailor treatment for depression to the needs of individual patients, and a current research project aiming to enhance this in the future.  They will address how the efficacy of current treatments is limited by doctors’ inability to predict in advance which person will respond to which treatment and the necessity of relying on “trial-and-error” in selecting treatments for mood disorders.  They will discuss a new study funded by the National Institute of Mental Health using cutting-edge brain imaging and other biologic testing to enable selecting the best treatment for an individual at the outset of treatment.


    Contact Information: For more information on obtaining treatment by participating in a research study, please visit the Depression Evaluation Service website at www.depression-nyc.org or call us at 646 774-8000.

    Is There a Role for Ibogaine in Mainstream Addiction Treatment?

    in Self Help

    Ibogaine is an extract from an African plant.  It produces a number of effects that we’ll find out about tonight but among them is the elimination, for most clients, of cravings and even desire for addictive substances.  Ibogaine came into mainstream view in the last decade  through its use as an alternative to largely unsuccessful attempts to help heroin addicts.  The drug and its use are banned in the US but unscheduled in other countries including Mexico and Canada.  We’ll talk tonight to Dr. Martin Polanco the founder of Crossroads Clinic Treatment Center and colleague, Recovery Coach, Deanne Adamson.

    Healing Addiction, Part 6 : Understanding Food Addiction

    in Lifestyle

    Addictions are not just about chemicals and alcohol.  You can be addicted to just about anything.  Food addiction is a tough one to beat.  It’s not like you can just stop eating!  Comfort food is flagrantly flashed in front of you in about 50% of commercials.  Just about every celebration is accompanied by the smells and sights of high carb, low nutrition selections.  How do you learn to say no to this most acceptable of addictions?  First, says Dr. Jim Wilder, understand the unmet need behind the drive for food.  As we head into the holidays, arm yourself with a new perspective for the great food challenge.
