Course Description

Addiction is one of the most ubiquitous forms of mental health disorders globally. In many countries its burden on health care is so excessive as to constitute a medical and economic crisis. As a consequence of the magnitude of this disorder many scholars, institutions, and clinicians have desperately sought to understand and address this complex phenomenon. Although many theories of addiction exist and our explanation of addiction has become more sophisticated, there are still serious shortcomings in our understanding. Furthermore, there is such a cornucopia of conflicting theories of addiction that for treatment providers, therapists, and policymakers it has become exceedingly difficult to integrate this vast field of knowledge into effective treatment.
