Addiction to alcohol and other drugs is the nation’s major public health problem, with implications for family, business and industry, traffic safety, and the physical, mental, and spiritual health of millions. The objective of these courses is to provide a background for work in treatment and rehabilitation, in education and prevention, in industry and in referral centers. They also supplement the training of degreed professionals as well as students preparing to work in psychiatry or psychology, nursing, social work, criminal justice, or allied fields.
