Addiction Pharmacology Training

Join us for the next round of Cascadia’s Addiction Pharmacology training, a three-day training focused on the treatment of Substance Use Disorders. This training meets requirements for a psychopharmacology course for a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CADC) certificate, and CEs will also be offered through NBCC. The course emphasizes clinical application of the materials through interactive activities and role play.

Course Topics

  • Basic principles of drug use, misuse, and addiction
  • History of drug law and policy
  • Biological and neurological functioning
  • Overview of 7 major drug categories

This training will be presented by Nigel Wrangham, CADC II, CPS. Nigel was an Instructor at the University of Oregon for 15 years where he taught upper-division courses in line with the curriculum requirements of the Substance Abuse Prevention Program. He taught classes and served as a practicum supervisor at PCC for their CADC students for 10 years. Additionally, Nigel has worked with the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA) for nearly 15 years to develop and teach substance use prevention for community activists, youth, law enforcement, and schools throughout the United States.

You must be able to attend all three days. Seats are limited.
