HUMN 4011 - Addiction Case Management and Prevention


(5 cr.)
Case managers play an important role in helping service users access needed services and plan for their long-term recovery. In this course, students explore the core functions of case management: assessment, planning, linkage, monitoring, and advocacy. They apply what they learn about each function to an authentic case study about a service user who has an alcohol addiction. As they do so, they create service plan goals, make appropriate referrals, monitor and document progress, advocate for the service user, and create an aftercare plan. Throughout the course, students also examine ethical standards and laws that are relevant to case management functions, and they apply strategies to prevent substance use in their communities.
Prerequisites
PSYC 2014 or HUMN 2014
Note: Any undergraduate student can enroll in this course, as long as the pre-req is met.
