online course

duration 3 weeks
credits 10 EC

Substance use disorders (SUDs) are the third most costly mental health disorders in high-income countries. These costs are related to greater health problems and/or increasing disability from work, among others. While there are many potential interventions to reduce the impact of SUDs both for the individual and for the society, there are also challenges in implementing these interventions.

In this course, the instructors will introduce the students to key concepts related to various types of interventions for substance use (e.g., prevention, treatment, rehabilitation), and common methods and indices to measure whether they work. The students will also learn about major approaches to implement interventions (e.g., public health, medical, psychosocial).
