SWK 6200. Assessment and Treatment of Substance Abuse Disorder (3 credits)


Our understandings of substance use, dependence, abuse, and treatment are some of the most rapidly evolving and also controversial areas of knowledge in the mental health and medical fields. This course is designed to cover the key content necessary for developing a comprehensive understanding of a complex body of knowledge that is filled with certainties and uncertainties, science and speculation, dogma and theory, as well as opinion and silence. It will also provide students with a reflective grasp of a confusing body of knowledge. Topics covered include ethnocultural influences in addiction, sociocultural aspects of addiction, definitions of addiction, profiles in addiction, substances of addiction, models of treatment, family work, group support and self-medication theories of addiction.
