Program objectives
1. Describe historic events in the genesis, societal patterns of rejection, tolerance and acceptance, and recognition and treatment of addictions, both in the public and health professions.
2. Describe the complex nature of addiction and recovery and how this both conflicts with and supports the concept of addiction as a disease, often amenable to pharmacotherapy.
3. Identify methods to develop addiction recovery resources in local communities utilizing existing support structures, including the expertise of pharmacists, and discuss potential challenges that may be encountered.
