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.
The article Medications Development Division Nurtures the Creation of New Addiction Treatments centers around how Congress mandated NIDA to promote the development of medications “to treat the symptoms and disease of drug abuse” in conjunction with the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1988.
Community-Based Treatment Benefits Methamphetamine Abusers is about how methamphetamine abusers can achieve long-term abstinence with the help of standard community-based drug abuse treatment.
Bupropion Helps People With Schizophrenia Quit Smoking describes how the smoking-cessation aid bupropion is safe and effective for people with schizophrenia.
All three articles are contained in one PDF.
This course is based on the reading-based online article, Drug Abuse Treatment Evidence: Collection II (NIDA Notes): Article 1: Medications Development Division Nurtures the Creation of New Addiction Treatments; Article 2: Community-Based Treatment Benefits Methamphetamine Abusers; Article 3: Bupropion Helps People With Schizophrenia Quit Smoking created by Lori Whitten
Publication Date:July 2006 and April 2006
