    The course includes take-home references and tools for use afterwards.

    Content covered includes:

    • Identifying the relationship between mental health and substance use
    • Signs and symptoms
    • Causes and risk factors
    • Integrated treatment options
    • Interactions between psychiatric medications and substances of abuse
    • Strategies for combating stigma related to concurrent disorders
