Evidence Based Practices in Treating Substance Use Disorders

 

In 2013, almost 24 million people in the United States aged 12 or older had used an illicit drug or abused a medication in the past 30 days. . Nearly every mental health clinician will encounter people with substance use disorders at some point in their career. This course will provide you with basic knowledge about the topic of substance use disorders (SUD) so that you can effectively help people who have them. This training begins by making you more familiar with terminology associated with substances. You will then learn about signs and symptoms of substance use. You will learn about specific substances, including alcohol, cannabis, stimulants, and opiates, and you will become familiar with evidence-based practices for treating substance use disorders.. While this course focuses specifically on the treatment of substance use disorders, most of these case examples feature stories of individuals who have co-occurring SUD and other psychological disorders, as they very commonly occur together. This course is appropriate for entry- and intermediate-level licensed clinicians (psychologists, social workers, nurses), in a variety of behavioral health settings.
