In this course participants will identify major drug categories, learn about the addiction spectrum from abstinence to dependency and different models of ATOD abuse in all contexts of the Bio-psycho- social model. Defense mechanisms common to addicts and alcoholics will also be discussed. This is a core class for those planning to take the CPS exam and an excellent refresher for more seasoned professionals. This class reminds us how we can make a difference in the lives of our clients or in the communities where we work.
Class delivered via Zoom over two days. YOU MUST register for the first class in order to be able to attend both days and receive a certificate.
