Fundamentals of Addiction (CAMH)

Location: Online

This course aims to help learners further their understanding of addictive behaviour, which in the current Diagnostic and Statistical Manual includes both substances use issues and problem gambling. We present the biopsychosocial plus (BPS+) model of addiction, which provides a multidimensional way of understanding this complex field.

The main themes in this course include:

  • social determinants of health
  • harm reduction
  • screening and assessment
  • treatment
  • legal issues and ethical considerations.
