ADS557 Families & Addictive Related Issues Across the Lifespan (2 cr.)

The course explores the impact of substance abuse and other addictions on the family, individually and systemically. It seeks to offer current understanding of the impacts of developmental effects throughout the lifespan. Historical and contemporary theory and techniques used in the treatment and recovery for individuals and family systems are studied.

Upon completion of the course, students are expected to be able to do the following:

  1. Assess the role and adverse effects of addiction on family members.
  2. Synthesize theories, including intergenerational, mental health, genetic, and environmental into the continuum of care with families.
  3. Evaluate, implement, and apply evidence-based treatment approaches, theories, and models currently in practice.
  4. Incorporate families and system factors into treatment planning along the continuum of care while satisfying the 12 core functions.
  5. Integrate into family practice stakeholders, community connections, support networkers, cultures, and sub-cultures along the continuum of care.
