SOCW 8203 - Theories, Treatment, and Case Management of Addictions


(5 cr.) Students in this course are introduced to theories, treatment intervention, and case management strategies for addiction counseling. The focus of the course is to introduce various models of treatment, recovery, relapse prevention, and continuing care for addictive disorders. In addition, students explore the treatment principles and philosophies of addiction-related programs. Students increase their self-awareness as addiction counselors by understanding their own limitations as counselors; recognizing when they need additional resources and support; and knowing when and where to refer clients when appropriate. In addition, students examine substance abuse policies and regulatory processes that influence service delivery in addiction counseling.
