Addiction: A Matter of Substance and Process

This course is designed for the lay-person or professional, who wishes to understand more about the many issues, paradoxes, and possibilities related to addiction, dependence, anxiety, depression, beliefs, and trauma. It is a primer on these subjects – but it also offers a fairly in-depth understanding of the subjects as well as options and process possibilities. Students will gain insight into the nature of these issues and will be presented with information, tools, techniques, resources, and medication options with which to challenge, "care-front," release and/or process the presenting issues at a pace and in a manner that is safe for the individual. It is recommended that a person be in counselling, have medical support, a sponsor, or support group if personally dealing with an addiction.
