Course Description: Substance use is a multi-billion-dollar cost to society every year and impacts over 19.7 million Americans over the age of twelve (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration, 2018).  Over 8.5 million adults suffer from substance use disorder and a mental illness simultaneously.  Throughout the United States there are over 14,500 treatment facilities that specialize in addiction treatment, while only about 19% of those who need it actually receive treatment (National Institute on Drug Abuse, 2018). While substance abuse is considered highly treatable, it is often complicated when there are co-occurring mental health concerns. Even more challenging is when there has been a traumatic event experienced by the individual with the substance use disorder. The difficulties in discerning how to approach which disorder initially or as the root cause, often results in slower gains in treatment. The following advanced level course explores the use of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), which has been a prominent treatment modality in the treatment of trauma, in the therapeutic process of treating substance use disorders.
