$100

REQUIRED CLASS FOR CAS 

Infectious Disease Class (14 hours)

Drug and alcohol abuse can increase an individual’s susceptibility to contract and spread infectious diseases, including STDs and blood borne illnesses. Drug use is linked to risky behaviors such as needle sharing and unsafe sex and can also weaken the immune system. This combination greatly increases the likelihood of contracting HIV, hepatitis, and other infectious diseases. Understanding of infectious diseases that might affect individuals who are addicted to alcohol and other substances is a cornerstone of addiction counseling. This class will help prepare addiction professionals to identify such diseases, determine individual risk for infection, educate individuals about disease prevention and treatment options, and assist individuals in obtaining appropriate treatment as needed.
