This course is designed with a singular goal: to improve the care you provide to your patients with substance use disorders. By delving into a model case performed by actors, seven Yale instructors from various fields provide techniques to screen your patients for substance use disorder risk, diagnose patients to gauge the severity of their use, directly manage treatment plans, refer out to treatment services, and navigate the various conditions that may limit your patient’s access to treatment. You will ultimately be prepared to provide compassionate and evidence-based care to a large population of patients living with addiction— a chronic, often relapsing-remitting disease, but a treatable one.

TOP REVIEWS FROM ADDICTION TREATMENT: CLINICAL SKILLS FOR HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS
I loved this course in many ways but I felt that the things they talked about and stated as evidence-based I wish there were links to the research articles or articles given for download on them.
This course will serve me in practice, personal life, and as a resource to come back to when I have questions. Thanks for the well organized and very informative, evidence based, information.
I really enjoyed the course and especially the open discussion. The only drawback is the lack of Canadian information and maps but due to it being an American courses, it is understandable.
Please have more racially diverse medical health participants in the discussion forum and add two non-health professionals with lived experiences with addiction participate in the forums.
