Substance Use Disorders 101

This training will provide information on the consequences of substances commonly used by consumers and will introduce participants to the epidemiology and prevalence, and neurobiology of co-occurring disorders. Substance use disorder (SUD) is a diagnostic term referring to recurrent use of alcohol or other drugs (AOD) that causes “clinically and functionally significant” impairment, i.e., work, school, home, and health. Addiction is a term used to indicate the most severe, chronic stage of SUD, when there is substantial loss of self-control, indicated by compulsive drug-taking despite the desire to stop using the substance. This training will explore the neurobiological basis of SUDs and provide information on the medical consequences of substance use.
