Description: When substance use disorders are present, every member regardless of age or role within the family structure is profoundly affected and will experience or witnessed varying degrees of emotional, physical, psychological, or spiritual trauma.  Depression, anxiety and other mental health issues often follow these experiences during their live times, causing the problematic relationships both inside and outside the family unit. This course will detail the impact that substance abuse has on the entire family, and will present various treatment responses.

    1. Helene-no you must be certified before you can earn CEU’s, but keep special topics in mind. They are a good way to earn CEU’s once you are certified and at a Waubonsee tuition rate a good price.
