About the Course:

This course explores outpatient substance abuse counseling. The first article outlines the history of substance use therapy, and discusses a relational model, specifically the application of an integrated relational approach, including person centered therapy, motivational interviewing, and solution focused therapy. The second article is a pilot study testing technology-based interventions for clients with substance use disorders as part of outpatient substance use treatment. The authors used Daily Progress System, a form of Interactive Voice Response to track use and symptoms.
