Course Overview

Tobacco, alcohol, and illicit drug abuse is costly to the U.S., resulting in more than $740 billion annually in costs related to crime, lost work productivity, and healthcare (National Institute on Drug Abuse [NIDA], 2018). The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's (SAMHSA) National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) is the primary source of information on the prevalence, patterns, and consequences of alcohol, tobacco, and illegal drug use and abuse in the general US population.
