The cerebral cortex contains the key brain regions necessary for language comprehension and production. It is important that all addiction treatment clinicians have a general understanding of the different disorders that may be the result of cerebral cortex damage. Sometimes people may present with strange symptoms that may or may not be the result of drugs so it is important that clinicians become adept at recognizing when the disorder is due to drug addiction or the result of something else.
