Alcoholism and Drug Abuse: Identification and Early Intervention

SSW CP 809

Students learn methods for identification, diagnosis, intervention, and referral of substance-abusing clients and clients with co-occurring mental health problems in a range of settings. The course helps students work with clients who are unaware of their problem or not ready to address it, as well as clients in treatment and those in relapse. Students take drinking/drug histories, assess clients stage of readiness for change, estimate problem severity, and negotiate treatment goals. Attention is paid to family issues, harm reduction approaches, use of evidence-based treatments, and the role of 12-Step Programs in supporting recovery. Teaching methods include lecture, skill practice, video demonstrations, and case consultation.
