Course Detail

Title: Introduction to Substance Abuse - Families/Native Community
Course: IWA 200


The experience of substance abuse in Indigenous communities, including its historical causes and the social, economic and political forces that keep it alive is unique. Students begin to discuss common types of drugs and their effects on the users. Trends of abuse will be explored and reasons as to why people turn to substance abuse will be examined. Students will learn how substance abuse is a social issue and how it is connected to problems such as crime, violence, and other dysfunctional behaviors. For many individuals, the substance abuse occurs along with a mental health diagnosis. This concept of concurrent diagnoses will be discussed and students will learn how to deal with cases of dual diagnosis in a positive and professional manner. The course will emphasize the importance of collaboration and cooperation between healthcare and human service professionals when working with individuals who have dual diagnosis.
