It will help you to better:

  • Define addiction in terms of it being a relapsing and chronic disease
  • Distinguish between pharmacologic, medical, and behavioral strategies for opioid use treatment
  • Outline approaches to identify and treat substance use in adolescents and adults
  • Identify the commonly occurring infectious diseases seen in patients with addictions
