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.
Basic Neurochemistry for Non-Scientists
If you are at case conference or other meetings and hear clinicians describe why medications work, what dopamine does to the body, and other questions about brain chemistry and don’t understand the discussion, this course will describe some of the basics of neurochemistry. It is focused for people who work in the field of substance use or co-occurring disorders and are not scientists.
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.
