    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is the foundation of pursuing a career in substance abuse counseling. It provides you with the basics and fine print of addiction. Each aspect of understanding addiction is outlined in this course, and it is explained through each perspective present in psychology. This course will broaden your understanding of exactly what addiction is, what is does to the individual, and how to combat and conquer it.

    Course highlights:

    The main highlight in this course is that each week presented new challenging material. This was not a class that you could prepare the bare minimum and breeze through, you have to put in the work to get the best out of it. You learn how to apply each theoretical approach of addiction to case studies, and in your own life. We all know someone who struggles with addiction, and through this course you learn the key concepts needed to work in the field.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    STUDY STUDY STUDY. This course is not for the faint of heart or for those that are looking to ride through with little effort. This course requires extra effort and work to thoroughly understand the material. You should also enter the course with basic knowledge of psychology and the steps of treatment of addictions and options available to clients, as well as an understanding of how to use DSM-5.
