Customer Testimonial

This course was clearly the most comprehensive literature to address the clinical guidelines for management of substance use disorders. The examination of protocols for interventions to treatment were especially relevant to best practice guidelines in regards to interventions involving medications. I found this course to be the best I have found within literature for substance use treatment. I am glad I found it.
