This course provides a “deep dive” into the psychological foundations and evidence base for understanding substance use, misuse and recovery. This wholistic approach will not only investigate the mechanistic components of addiction (human chemistry, biology and brain science), but also explore the oft cited spiritual, psychological, and existential dimensions of the addiction experience. Modules will be included that describe in detail the common drugs of abuse and their various properties, as well as the drugs utilized in medication assisted treatment. Attention is paid to treatment modalities, recovery support services, intervention, nutrition, co-occurring disorders, motivational therapy, harm reduction, tobacco addiction and special populations.
