This course will serve me in practice, personal life, and as a resource to come back to when I have questions. Thanks for the well organized and very informative, evidence based, information.

This is a terrific course that challenges personal biases and educates the learner regarding care in terms of medications and treatment assessments, options, plans and more

Very informative. This course gave lots of information and strategy’s through interviews. My disappointment came after I put so many hours in taking this course in very seriously in order to increase my education just to read non credit on the certificate. I take many certification courses that are much less detailed and less formal (no tests) and they don’t print that . I feel this six week course deserves to be a credited Course. It has a large amount of learning and study time involved making it deserving. Thank you for increasing my knowledge base.

There is an abundance of quality, researched, and well-structured information given in this course. It would have helped to have some medial background to complete some aspects of the course, but I enjoyed learning more about SUD diagnosis, referral, and history.

I wish it could give some weightage to the course mentioning that a volunteer can be qualified to be a non-medic counselor or a medical counselor's assistant to work in any rehab or addiction treatment facility.

I really enjoyed the course and especially the open discussion. The only drawback is the lack of Canadian information and maps but due to it being an American courses, it is understandable.

Please have more racially diverse medical health participants in the discussion forum and add two non-health professionals with lived experiences with addiction participate in the forums.

I enjoyed this course and I would advise a lot people to use this course. I wish there was more racial diversity besides that one black woman doctor in the role play.

It focuses too much on how to address the wording of.....Does not get into the root cause. My best friend and little brother died of an overdose. They would not care of the verbage. You Yale people don't get it.

I have too much experience with addiction already as I have had family and friends who either were and are struggling with addiction. I found that this course had further augmented what I had taken when I was doing my undergraduate degree. The additional skills and knowledge that I have gleaned from this course will not only help me professionally in dealing with people who have substance use disorders. These same skills will serve me well in my personal life as I know friends, family and people who are suffering from addiction to alcohol and other harmful substances as I can transfer the skills from the clinical environment into my day to day interactions with people I know who suffer from some form of substance use disease. The extra knowledge that I received in this course on top of the cursory knowledge I have learned in my undergraduate studies should prepare me to deal more effectively with the addicted population that we see in mental health clinical settings but again this knowledge goes well beyond the clinical environment and has real world applications that I can use in my daily life too often. Thanks to all involved in the organizing the highly relevant content and those who presented the content in an organized, user friendly format. I would highly recommend this course to anyone regardless of whether they have any knowledge of the subject matter whatsoever. This problem cuts across disciplines and can be applied to all too many situations.

When I started this course I was pleasantly surprised of the simplicity of the course. But as It progressed the technical terms and professionalism of the instructors impressed upon me to dig a little deeper on what the true value of this course could be. I thoroughly enjoyed the multi phased approach of each teacher and valued the wisdom and knowledge given by each. The round table forum was great and that enlighten me on various hands on experiences and the job skills by the professional staff involved with each forum. I would love to go back over the information in the future as I gain more skills and experiences in the healthcare system.

when my mother died of an overdose on fentanyl with the oxy she took i was devastated, cause i tryed to help her, but i could not, she was alone,scared and with no one to help her. this course taught me how to over come that barrier to help my dad before its to late for him as well, and to help others who dont know they have options. i wish evrybody could vew this class so we can have more compassion for thoes who struggle with is problems. i can safely say we all have our falts our own addictions(food, exercising, smoking, drinking, doing drugs)each one of us are inperfect. SO I WANT TO SAY A BIG BIG THANK YOU ALL FOR THIS CLASS.

Good easy to follow explanations. the instructors' commitment to teaching about compassionate evidence-based methods to assist patients to get into treatment and also help their loved ones is very inspiring to me. The exercise to locate n make a map of local services for substance use disorders is also really useful. The professionals' perspective on various topics are great for me to understand how the various therapies and medications are used by different health care providers.

Este curso resultó ser mucho más completo de lo que esperaba como todos los cursos de Coursera. Estoy muy contenta de todo lo que he aprendido sobre las adiciones, el estigma para las personas con dependencia de sustancias. He aprendido a hablar adecuadamente y a tener compasión. Lo recomiendo al cien por ciento para profesionales, y sobre todo para la familia y amigos de personas que esten sufriendo por este transtorno que muchas veces es mal visto en nuestra sociedad.

Great overview of available assessment tools, treatments, and social context of addiction treatment that will broaden the perspective for professionals and "civilians" alike. An amazing interdisciplinary group of experts, great resource guides, engaging discussions - all a non-medic like myself can ask for when it comes to understanding addiction disorders, barriers in access to treatment, and ways to help those who seek it. only wish it contained more case study videos.

This course was very eye-opening and informative. As a Psych student interested in healthcare, this gave me a lot of insight and knowledge that I do hope to utilize one day. Every lecturer was very experienced, well-spoken and seemed to take a lot of pride in what they do. I recommend this course even to those who do not have a background or prior knowledge in Health Science as it is quite easy to follow and provides clear explanation of every basic term! Thank you!

An excellent course that touched all bases of substance use disorder management (from screening, to its social determinants of health). I very much appreciated the consistent use of destigmatizing terminology, the comprehensive feedback in our quizzes, the well-paced and informative videos, and overall, the holistic and compassionate approach employed by these brilliant instructors. This was my first Coursera course and I'm glad I chose it.

The reason I gave it a 5 star is because it was very informative and I enjoyed what I was learning, but those round table conversations was not for me. To me they were very boring and after you listen to what was being said in the modules. I just didn't want to hear the table talk. I know that some of it was worth the wait, but for me I just made me lose more interest in what I wanted to learn more about.

Exceptional program. Information shared was up-to-date (including impact of Covid-19), covering physical, mental, social, psychological and spiritual aspects of the human condition and substance use. Education videos were direct and prudent. Quizzes tested ones ability to apply what learned in each module. Would recommend this course for anyone with interest in Substance use and management.

I have a very high opinion about this course as it encompasses every aspect of addiction treatment.I am impressed by its comprehensiveness- yet minuteness, and bjective evaluation. I have become enriched by latest knowlegde and current practical skills in addiction treatment which will be highly beneficial to my patients in my Deaddiction Center.
Thanks to all the guiding teachers.

Excelente, muy buen ritmo de voz y supieron transmitir sus conocimientos. Me fue muy dificil contestar los examenes pues eran todos en ingles. Fue un gran esfuerzo para mi, y les agradezco la oportunidad de abrirnos las puertas para aprender de sus excelentes docentes por este medio. Felicidades, ojala´ sigan abriendo sus purtas al aprendizaje de calidad por este medio.

First class course on how to talk to, get help for, and support a human being with an Unhelpful Addictive Behaviour. While I do not subscribe to the disease model, and see Unhelpful Addictive Behaviour as a common human condition, with levels of chronicity including deadly, this course empowered me to be more effective with a human being I might encounter. Love it.

This is one of the best Courser courses I have listened to. A very rich, informative program. I liked the integrative multidisciplinary approach and the humanistic concept underneath. Good presentation, extra materials. I really liked the cases - the lecturers played like real actors! very clear and believable.
Many thanks to the creators for this course!
