As part of this goal, we maintain a growing library of informative health guides researched and written by qualified experts—biomedical, behavioral and mental health care researchers, practitioners, and others knowledgeable in the field of addiction treatment.
We hope these guides will serve to promote increased knowledge and understanding of drug and alcohol addiction and their profound effects on individual health and wellbeing, social and interpersonal relationships, as well as their impact on the larger public health landscape.
Substance Abuse and Headaches
There are many neurologic consequences that may result from both acute and chronic substance abuse—headache being a very common one of them.
This guide will shine a light on various headache types associated with drug and alcohol use, and will provide information about non-drug pain management as well as the ultimate therapeutic intervention—substance abuse recovery.
