About the Course:
This course is based on three NIDA Notes articles. NIDA Notes is a large collection of brief relevant articles focusing on current drug abuse treatment evidence.
Treatment During Work Release Fosters Offenders’ Successful Community Retry explains how long term studies are helping to determine the most effective drug treatment protocols for prisoners in transition.
Research Network Tests Drug Abuse Treatment Following Incarceration describes how the initial Criminal Justice Drug Abuse Treatment Studies (CJ-DATS) project’s efforts are focusing on the pivotal period surrounding prison release.
*_Nicotine and Cocaine Vaccines Move Forward*_ found NicVAX to be a safe and well tolerated vaccine to prevent nicotine addiction. Additionally, an investigational medication designed to induce the body’s natural defenses to inactivate cocaine before it reaches the brain has cleared an important human trials hurdle.
All three articles are contained in one PDF.
This course is based on the reading-based online article, Drug Abuse Treatment Evidence: Collection III (NIDA Notes): Article 1: Treatment During Work Release Fosters Offenders’ Successful Community Reentry; Article 2: Research Network Tests Drug Abuse Treatment Following Incarceration; Article 3: Nicotine and Cocaine Vaccines Move Forward created by Lori Whitten and Nora D. Volkow, M.D.
