Substance Abuse & Depression: A Collaborative Approach to Treatment and Recovery

The relationship between depression and substance abuse is complex. Depression can precede, follow or co-occur with substance use, abuse, and dependence. This four-week online course will examine this complex relationship and provide a framework for a collaborative and integrated approach to screening, assessment, treatment and recovery from these co-occurring conditions. This course will also address attitudes, beliefs, and emotional reactions of service providers, the perspectives of consumers with depression and substance use concerns, and a collaborative approach to screening, assessment and management of suicidal risk. Learning methods include online lessons, clinical examples, homework, and online discussion forums.
