PPOL 798 - Poltc/Policies:Addiction & Rec
Almost everyone knows someone who is either suffering or recovering from alcohol and/or drug problems. There are perhaps no other issues that span so many policy areas as those of addiction and recovery. This course will provide an overview of the impact that addiction has across society and most importantly, highlight what can and is being done do address these problems.  Students will learn about the policy implications that drug and alcohol addictions have to health care, the justice systems and even workforce development. The course will conclude with an exploration of the current “recovery revolution” that is underway across the country and provide students with a deeper understanding of the multifaceted and interwoven nature of policies surrounding addiction and recovery. The course format will combine lecture, group discussions and guest presentations.
