While many similarities exist between substance abuse treatment for those in the criminal justice system and for those in the general population, people in the criminal justice system have added stressors, including but not limited to their precarious legal situation. Criminal justice clients also tend to have characteristics that affect treatment. These include criminal thinking and criminal values along with the more typical resistance and denial issues found in other substance abuse treatment populations.
This course will cover relapse models in substance abuse field. It will provide a closer look into the services, interventions and programs available for substance abusers involved in the criminal justice systems and how to help them prevent future incarcerations.
