This is a terrific course that challenges personal biases and educates the learner regarding care in terms of medications and treatment assessments, options, plans and more
The course was very informative! It was my first one and I learned a lot. It was very well structured and covered all of the important topics. I'm glad I selected this one.

Very informative. This course gave lots of information and strategy’s through interviews. My disappointment came after I put so many hours in taking this course in very seriously in order to increase my education just to read non credit on the certificate. I take many certification courses that are much less detailed and less formal (no tests) and they don’t print that . I feel this six week course deserves to be a credited Course. It has a large amount of learning and study time involved making it deserving. Thank you for increasing my knowledge base.

There is an abundance of quality, researched, and well-structured information given in this course. It would have helped to have some medial background to complete some aspects of the course, but I enjoyed learning more about SUD diagnosis, referral, and history.

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.

I enjoyed this course and I would advise a lot people to use this course. I wish there was more racial diversity besides that one black woman doctor in the role play.

Good easy to follow explanations. the instructors' commitment to teaching about compassionate evidence-based methods to assist patients to get into treatment and also help their loved ones is very inspiring to me. The exercise to locate n make a map of local services for substance use disorders is also really useful. The professionals' perspective on various topics are great for me to understand how the various therapies and medications are used by different health care providers.

Great overview of available assessment tools, treatments, and social context of addiction treatment that will broaden the perspective for professionals and "civilians" alike. An amazing interdisciplinary group of experts, great resource guides, engaging discussions - all a non-medic like myself can ask for when it comes to understanding addiction disorders, barriers in access to treatment, and ways to help those who seek it. only wish it contained more case study videos.

Exceptional program. Information shared was up-to-date (including impact of Covid-19), covering physical, mental, social, psychological and spiritual aspects of the human condition and substance use. Education videos were direct and prudent. Quizzes tested ones ability to apply what learned in each module. Would recommend this course for anyone with interest in Substance use and management.

First class course on how to talk to, get help for, and support a human being with an Unhelpful Addictive Behaviour. While I do not subscribe to the disease model, and see Unhelpful Addictive Behaviour as a common human condition, with levels of chronicity including deadly, this course empowered me to be more effective with a human being I might encounter. Love it.

This is one of the best Courser courses I have listened to. A very rich, informative program. I liked the integrative multidisciplinary approach and the humanistic concept underneath. Good presentation, extra materials. I really liked the cases - the lecturers played like real actors! very clear and believable.
Many thanks to the creators for this course!

The course was relevant, forward thinking and very informative. I enjoyed the ability to move at my own pace and found tools to use in my journey to Learn more about addiction medicine. My goal is to add genuine compassion together with knowledge to the practice of healing & wellness of any persons impacted by addiction. October 2020

Great course! Although some lectures and activities are more applicable in US, the concept may also be used in my country. The technique of giving a theoretical perspective, then practical application, and panelists discussion helped to better understand the topic and put the lessons into clearer perspective.

This was a great course, my internship is working with SU (substance use) and learning about medication management, side affects, treatment options, and other aspects allows myself to know the population much better. The courses were easy to follow and informative.
It was a wonderful learning experience that integrated not only the requisite skills but also the various limitations in the field, a proper and comprehensive understanding of which will enable current and future providers in the field to give their absolute best.

Informative and constructively challenging. This course taught me a lot that I was unaware of and also helped me to see more clearly where in the health care system I can work and help make a difference in my community.

Excellent delivery of materials. Great panellist discussions that are to the point and relevant. Highly recommend those interested in SUD to take this course and those in the field to use it as a revision.

muy bueno, aprendí mucho sobre como sobrellevar una adicción como también me sirvió para una introspección de mi mismo y de mis hábitos. Me gusto mucho, nos vemos
