This training provides a simplified understanding of how drugs affect brain processes that underlie the motivational drive associated with drug use. Theories of drug-induced behavioral reinforcement and comorbidity of substance abuse with other psychological disorders will be presented. Current research into mechanisms of action of psychoactive drugs is fully discussed and referenced. The course emphasizes that non-prescribing mental health professionals should be knowledgeable and conversant in the pharmacology of the drugs their clients are taking. Basic concepts such as drug tolerance and specific neurobiological processes and mechanisms that relate to withdrawal and intoxication are also addressed. Whereas these processes are highly complex, the training will explain them in terms that can be presented to clients.
During the course, brief overviews of anatomy and physiological processes of the nervous system are presented, along with a study of the various psychotropic medications and drugs of compulsive abuse. Resources for remaining current with new medications for treatments are identified. While the individual client, (rather than his or her disease) is the appropriate focus of treatment, an understanding of the neurobiology helps clarify the rationale for particular methods and goals. More importantly, knowledge of brain effects or abnormalities allows for use of medications that specifically target and reverse known neurochemical problems (Haile & Kosten, 2013).
