The Course on Addiction and Recovery Education (CARE) was developed by the nonprofit Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation to address the widely recognized need for substance use disorder education in medicine, nursing, pharmacy and healthcare as a whole. A lack of formal training in this area has left many of today's practitioners inadequately prepared to assess, intervene, manage, and treat addiction and co-occurring disorders. Properly trained providers will be positioned to better serve substance use patients as well as improve the overall quality and cost-effectiveness of health care. CARE prepares practitioners to take on today's most underdiagnosed and misunderstood disease: Addiction to alcohol and other drugs. A first-of-its-kind online platform, the Course on Addiction and Recovery Education (CARE) draws from leading experts and emerging science, covering topics such as integrated treatment for addiction and mental health issues and multicultural sensitivity. This course provides expert training and content that builds the skills needed to provide quality care to these patients. The modules combine virtual patient cases and video presentations with self-assessment questions. Practitioners utilize the Course on Addiction and Recovery Education (CARE) interactive platform to review patient profiles covering topics such as pregnancy and alcohol abuse, cannabis use in adolescents, pain management and liability for addiction, alcohol withdrawal, and more. Through our additional video content, leading addiction scientists and clinicians present the latest information and best practices on 14 topics, including neurobiology of addiction, evidence-based behavioral therapies, medication in the treatment of addiction, and genetics in alcohol and substance use disorders.
