Professor Melissa Bowen will instruct three new online courses in Addiction Studies this fall.

Courses are entitled Introduction to Addiction Studies,  Physiological Effects of Addiction,  and Addiction Prevention, Intervention, Treatment, and Recovery,

Students will explore both theoretical and evidence-based concepts, practices, and policies of Addiction and Recovery.  Coursework will look at the mental and behavioral impact of substance use, addiction, and recovery on individuals, families, and communities while also considering how problems and solutions must meet the concerns of multicultural and diverse populations.
