    Addiction is a chronic disease responsible for destroying lives, devastating families, and taking lives. There are many types of addiction; substance addictions (such as drugs and alcohol) as well as behavioral addictions (such as gambling, sex and eating). Our addiction recovery course provides a solid background for understanding addiction and equips the student with tools for supporting treatment and recovery.  Students will learn the differences between use, abuse, and dependence, the variety of treatment options and the steps that lead toward successful recovery.
