Substance Use 101:  A Series

Are you new in the field of substance use? Or do you want a review of the basics of alcohol and other drugs? This series of webinars/trainings is a collection of basic information and will present 3 popular topics:  the DSM-5, Neurochemistry, and Pharmacology.  Each course can be taken alone and participants will receive hours for each delivery.

Introduction to the DSM-5 and Models of Substance Use 

This first course will introduce participants to the DSM-5 and also present models of substance use (moral, disease, bio-psycho-social-spiritual). Also, many people are not aware of how the DSM-5 addresses culture. This course will review the Cultural Formation Interview contained in the DSM-5.

Credits: This training meets the requirements for two renewal hours (CASAC, CPP, CPS) and two initial hours (CPP, CPS) through New York State’s Office of Addiction Services and Supports (NYS OASAS). Participants must attend the session in its entirety to receive a certificate of completion.
