Understanding Addictions GS520
This course is an introduction to addiction and treatment theory. You will gain an understanding of addiction in general, and explore specific types of addictions -- including substance (drugs/alcohol/etc.) and behavior (gaming/ food/ phones/ pornography/ work/ exercise/ etc.) -- and how they work. Together, we will consider various models of addiction theory (i.e. why addiction occurs) and prominent models of treatment, both from a Biblical perspective.
NOTE: The 24 credit prerequisite may be waived for students in the Faith Based Addictions Certificate program or for other mature students upon approval.
