Course Details

Course Details: This course covers current research about substance use disorders and how science is contributing to new treatment approaches. Through videos, guest speakers, presentations and group discussions, learners will discover how the brain is affected by various classifications of substances (including opioids, sedatives, stimulants, psychedelics, and cannabinoids} from early experimental use through to dependency. Through case studies we will explore some key factors that medical practitioners and clinicians consider when treating problematic substance use. Learners will come to know how science is helping many substance disordered individuals let go of the shame, guilt and judgment associated with problematic substance use. The course is taught through a trauma informed lens, with attention to intersectionality and the implications of diversity. This course is designed for counsellors, mental health professionals, social workers, nurses and other health care workers serving individuals or families affected by problematic substance use.
