Description

The National Institute on Drug Abuse's (NIDA) mission is to lead the nation in bringing the power of science to bear on drug abuse and addiction. Recent scientific advances have revolutionized our understanding of drug abuse and addiction; culminating in the view of drug abuse and addiction as a chronic relapsing brain disease expressed in the form of compulsive behaviors. This understanding has improved our ability to both prevent and treat addiction. This course will teach participants the effects of drug abuse and how we can help prevent it.
