This is a D2L course that addresses the principles of addiction counseling relating to core functions 1, 2, 4 & 5 —screening, intake, assessment and diagnosis, and treatment placement and treatment planning, with particular focus on co-occurring disorders (COD), defined as a concurrent substance use disorder (SUD) and mental disorder (MD). Students will become familiar with current screening, diagnostic and treatment planning tools, including the current edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-TR-IV and DSM-V), the American Society of Addiction Medicine’s (ASAM) Patient Placement Criteria of Substance-Related Disorders (ASAM PPC-2R) and the “six dimensions” assessment and treatment planning, as well as structured diagnostic interviews, such as ASI.
