Course Description:

This advanced examination of substance abuse treatment focuses on substance-abusing clients and their families, encouraging them to form a heterogeneous group that is treated from an individualized perspective. We will explore practical skills and treatment strategies and address substance abuse as a disability and a complex problem. The concept of recovery will be addressed as a process that is holistic, individualized and functionally based. Using an integrated approach, we will examine personalized assessment, treatment planning, and behavior change strategies and effective treatment modalities.
