ABOUT THE WORKSHOP: 
Addiction and Substance Abuse are reaching an epidemic level according to a groundbreaking report published by the National Center on from Columbia University. Despite the fact that addiction is on the increase the vast majority of people in need of addiction treatment do not receive anything that is remotely related to evidence-based care. Furthermore only a small fraction of individuals receive interventions or treatment consistent with scientific based knowledge. The problem is that most treatment protocols currently used to treat addiction are antiquated and are exactly the same as the treatment used in 1950. It is so unfortunate that no modern individualized tailored scientific based, addiction treatment approaches were implemented in the last 64 years. I-AM-I is one of the pioneer institutions that focus on a natural, wholistic approach to addiction treatment. Whether the addiction is to drugs, substances, eating disorders, sex or gambling I-AM-I proposes a wholistic, natural evidenced based approach. Spearheaded by Dr. Dalal Akoury,
