CC 652 - Historical and Legal Developments in Addictions Disorders


This course is designed to increase the student’s understanding of the historical development of substance abuse and addictions from the following perspectives: origin and progression of legislation, cultural perspectives and uses including subcultures, current stances on legalization, the “war on drugs,” and the most current developing concerns from the growing list of addictive disorders (e.g. sexual addictions, internet addictions, video gaming addictions, eating disorders, and shopping addictions.) Considerations for how these disorders apply to special populations such as people of color, GLBT persons, ethnic-multicultural populations, the economically disadvantaged, the oppressed, veterans, women, children and adolescents, and HIV-positive clients are discussed. Also included in this course is a review of the ethical guidelines for addiction counselors and knowledge of related agencies, such as IODAPCA, SAMHSA, NIAAA, and CSAT. (3 credits)
