Introduction to Addiction This module introduces this course by addressing the question, “What is addiction?” within a broad view, where it considers not just substance use disorders but also behavioral addictions. This course is designed to improve the delivery of care to people who have historically been medically underserved and stigmatized. All of the storytellers you’ll meet throughout this course have experienced addiction and another life experience or identity that has been devalued in healthcare and society more generally. These experiences and identities do not exist independently of each other. Instead, they intersect, creating complex modes of discrimination and/or privilege.
Addiction Among Those Minoritized by Race or Ethnicity In this module, you will learn about the concepts of race, racism, intersectionality, and racial disparity, and how to work towards racial and health equity while supporting your clients who are experiencing mental health disorders and/or addiction.
Tips and Tactics for Treating Marginalized Patients In this module, you will learn about providing empathetic care to marginalized patients, using cultural formulation to shape treatment plans, and supporting patients in their recovery journey.
