The addiction treatment profession is changing as advancements in Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) are not only recognized, but incorporated into the treatment program. Current evidence shows that medications are underused in the treatment of alcohol use disorder, including alcohol abuse and dependence. This is of concern because of the high prevalence of alcohol problems in the general population. People who engage in risky drinking often have physical and social problems related to their alcohol use. Problems with alcohol influence the incidence, course, and treatment of many other medical and psychiatric conditions (NIAAA, 2015). As part of a comprehensive treatment modality, MAT for Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) has been shown to support and improve recovery, reduce drinking and cravings. This course is designed to support your knowledge and understanding, and the value of MAT for AUD, whether pharmacotherapy, or in combination with therapeutic and community support interventions.
Course Modality: This is an independent home-study course. Students will take the course according to their own timeline.
Course Completion: To receive the course certificate, each student is required to agree to Student Learning Contract, read all text-based materials, view any media posted, complete and pass course examination, and complete and submit course evaluation.
