During the presentation, Dr. Fonagy will outline the combination of mentalization-based therapy with addiction-specific strategies (MBT-SUD) to treat individuals with substance use disorder, particularly when co-morbid with personality disorders. 


MBT-SUD aims to tackle substance use by working toward abstinence and by targeting emotional dysregulation and impulsivity.
