BACS 560 Preventing Substance Use Disorders 3.0 Credits

This course provides a comprehensive overview of prevention theories and prevention programming related to substance use disorders. Course topics include principles and models of prevention, evidence-based practices, strategic planning, and outcome evaluation. A paradigm shift is occurring in substance use prevention programming. We are less focused on the use, and more focused on the user / environment interaction. New, effective programs motivate individuals to make low-risk choices though a variety of evidence-based practices including the social norms approach, environmental interventions, and public health models. Strategies for assessing target communities and then developing specific prevention programs will also be examined.
