One of the best course. Before I took up this course I have negative feelings towards the drugs addicts. But this course completely change my behavior and opinions towards them. Thank you so much.
I learned a lot from this course that I have been able to use in a ministry capacity. If you are trying to help others with addiction or understand it for yourself, this is the course for you.

While providing some knowledge about drugs and drug-addiction, I would have preferred a more in-depth guide into the inner workings of the brain related to drugs. Nevertheless it served as a good introduction to addiction.

Very comprehensive on all aspects on drug addiction, though a bit too difficult for those without any medical or biological background knowledge. More animations / diagrams for illustration would make the course better.

I enjoyed the material and flow of topics presented. I did have some trouble getting a few of the videos to load in the module on Neurotransmission (week 5), which was unfortunate. Very interesting, thanks!

A great and informative course. Very clear and interesting! I would have appreciated a bit more if it discussed more tips to help prevent/deal-with drug abuse or addiction. Thank you for the course!

Well designed course. I have a couple of close family members who are addicts...pills and gambling. I highly recommend this class. The professor is excellent and I've benefited from his lectures.

This is a useful basic refresher course for anyone who works or volunteers in the substance abuse field. I wanted to know the latest brain research and get an update on the various drug categories.
By Lea B•
very informative and well constructed
However, a bit biased towards negative effects of certain drugs without talking about their positive effects that are supported by research as well

I found the course very interesting and easily explained, I think that marihuana use should be rewied due to the several estudies from 2017 untill 2020. Great course, I recomend it.

This is a very good introductory course on the various aspects of addiction. I wish they would introduce a second part with more comprehensive information.

This is a very interesting course. Some of the material is pretty difficult, but it is presented in a clear manner. I learned a lot from the professor.

Real interesting and useful course, but since it's not my major, though sometimes hard for me to understand some concept. Still quite good! Nice teacher!

Fairly interesting course. I learned quite a bit I can say from taking this class. Some of the content seemed irrelevant. But overall a great course!
By Josh B•
A great insight into the addicted brain and what can be done about it all. A great broad introduction into drug addiction and the brain.
By Erica B•
Great course. It could have been a little more dense with technical information, but it was excellent for a broad overview of the topic.

sincerely. it was a great trip that was so fun .I had learned a lot of things that change whole picture about addicts , thanks so much
By Holly J•
The information was great. My only complaint would be how dry the lectures were, and I do not meant the content, I meant the delivery.
By Kathy S C•
This was very informative and right on the mark with how society feels and what is available in the lines of treatment/help.
By John M•
A great overview of relevant material and a well negotiated outline of how harm reduction can positively impact longterm drug abuse.
By Dominic S•
A very interesting course with a wide range of educational material. Perhaps could be a little more challenging though.
By Alqassem Y H•

a very in depth course at times the technical jargon could get a bit confusing for the average lay person

Very comprehensive but easy to follow. I only regret the "pro animal testing" proselytism here and there.
