Excellent course! I've acquired a broad understanding of addiction.

This is an interesting course for anyone who wants to understand drug addiction on many levels, physiological, psychological and societal. The main focus of the course is the effect of drug addiction on the brain, but prior knowledge of neurology is not required.

I learned a great deal about the mechanisms involved in drug addiction , drug policy, and risk and protective factors. The professor was knowledgeable and taught in a very understandable way.

Well done, introductory level course on addiction. Some of the quiz answers are actually incorrect as they stand.
