This 8 course, cross-disciplinary seminar will provide you with a thorough introduction to the role of applied neuroscience, or functional neurology, in addiction recovery.
Providers will gain a better understanding of the brain’s role in addiction and what can be improved to facilitate recovery through the following Course Goals:
"We had the pleasure of seeing Dr. Trayford speak on The Role of Applied Neuroscience in Addiction Recovery at a recent neurology conference. His ideas are timely and relevant to any health provider that encounters addiction in their practice. We highly recommend learning more about his unique, cross-disciplinary, brain-based approaches to addiction recovery and co-occurring learning and behavioral disorders through his online education courses".
-Dr. Elliot Hirshorn (DC, DACNB, DPSc) & Dr. Karla Hirshorn (MD)
Dr. Michael S. Trayford is a Board Certified Chiropractic Neurologist and the Founder and Director of Clinical Operations at APEX Brain Centers in Asheville, NC. His primary areas of focus in clinical practice and associated research are learning and behavioral disorders of adulthood (with a focus on addictive disorders), brain injury, and cognitive decline.
He is a published journal contributor, international lecturer, and proud recipient of the 2017/18 Functional Neurologist of the Year award from the International Association of Functional Neurology and Rehabilitation.
Dr. Trayford’s driving force for the past decade has been bringing together those in the mental health and neuroscience communities to more effectively address the growing challenges faced by those seeking lasting freedom from addiction. He teaches, mentors, and collaborates with many providers and programs across the country seeking neuroscience (neuroplasticity) based approaches to addiction recovery.
"I would like to recommend Dr. Michael Trayford and his expertise in functional neurology as it applies to neuro-psychological disorders. His speaking style is easily discernible and applicable to the evaluation, treatment and management of complex neuropsychological conditions. His engaging style allows the learner to understand the neurology, physiology, chemistry and simple algorithms to support short term and long-term conditions. I look forward to his growing body of expert work in clinical practice and online education delivery".
-Dr. David Rosenthal (Functional Neurologist – 2017 IAFNR Educator of the Year)
