BACS 568 Substance Use Counseling with Special Populations 3.0 Credits
The focus of this course is on effective approaches to assessing and treating people with substance use disorders who have unique needs. These populations include youth, older adults, women, people with co-occurring physical or psychiatric disabilities and members of the LGBT community. Appreciating how the values and attitudes of society and health care professionals influence working with these special populations are issues of particular importance.

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.
For additional information, and an up-to-date list of the writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Drexel University Writing Center page
