This project utilizes research generated on best practices for substance abuse treatment and the latest research on the neuroscience on addiction. Online modules will be established for social work students for certification as social work practitioners who have a knowledge and skill base for assessing and treating those who struggle with substance abuse/dependence. The certification was piloted in the spring of 2009 and will begin the fall of 2009 with two IUSSW School Certifications.
