Why Should I Take This Course?

  • Bridging the gap between addiction research and treatment, and linking research with treatment are among the most critical issues in substance abuse.

  • Research evidence on effective treatment is disseminated primarily through published articles. Adopting these treatment strategies requires learning about the research.

  • Some addiction counselors are intimidated by published research because they are unfamiliar with research terminology, concepts, and issues.

  • By increasing your familiarity with research-related terms, issues, concepts, and principles, you will better understand research-based evidence.

  • With an increased understanding of research-based evidence, you will be able to use this knowledge in your work and provide higher quality treatment to your clients.
