Course Overview

Approximately 1 in 10 of the world’s population will meet the criteria for a substance use disorder (SUD) at some point in their lives. In the United States, between 8 and 16 million people become physically dependent on alcohol, 5 million will use heroin at some point in their lifetime, 1.7 million use a methamphetamine compound at least once per year, 24 million are current users of marijuana, and at least 2 million use cocaine at least monthly (Grant et al., 2015). Fatal drug overdoses have increased 137% over a 14-year period in the United States. Alcohol is the leading risk factor for death and disability for 15-19 year olds (Lim, 2012) and is responsible for nearly 10 times the mortality rate for all illicit drugs combined (WHO, 2015). Heyman (2009) estimates that the annual financial impact of premature death, illness, lost wages, financial losses, and law enforcement expenditures totals $900 for every person 18 years or older. Despite these consequences, conservative estimates suggest that between 50-70% of those who qualify for substance abuse treatment do not actually receive it (Satcher & Rachel, 2017). Therefore, it is crucial that providers serving those with substance use disorders are trained to deliver high-quality, efficacious treatment. This course provides an overview of the evidence supporting the use of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) with clients experiencing SUDs followed by a review of common CBT interventions that can be easily applied within individual and group treatment. This course will also discuss medication management within the context of CBT, including how these interventions are applied with clients who experience co-occurring disorders.
