New Substance Abuse Training Program at ASU Beginning in August

Arizona State University (ASU) is launching an Addiction and Substance-Use Related Disorders online training program in August, according to an update released by ASU Now. The program aims to teach students about evidence-based treatments for substance abuse in an attempt to prepare the certified graduates for combatting the nationwide opioid crisis. The article quotes Matthew Meier, Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychology at ASU, who speaks to the aims of the new program:

“Most of the empirically validated treatments for substance abuse rehabilitation are not readily available, and our goal is to increase access to effective addiction treatments. We believe one way to do this is by teaching people who will be helping addicts about evidence-based treatment options.”
