Description

his course identifies drug cultures as a domain that requires proficiency in clinical skills, programmatic development, and administrative practices. It explores drug cultures in regards to: their concept; their relationship to mainstream culture; their values and rituals; and how and why people value their participation in such cultures. This course goes on to describe how counselors can determine a client’s level of involvement in, and identify and develop alternatives to their drug cultures, along with the importance of assisting clients in developing a culture of recovery.
