After completing the assigned Module readings, discuss what you believe to be the root cause of the development of Substance Use Disorders (spiritual, cultural, biological, or psychological). What are some of its effects on the person, family, and society? Based on your research, what do you believe to be the best prevention and treatment methods? Discuss this topic from a Biblical perspective considering causes, prevention, and treatment ideas.
Considering that Substance Use and addiction issues are very prevalent in our society, locate one treatment facility or recovery group in your area. Provide information such as the services provided by the treatment facility, program, or group, the types of issues treated (alcohol addiction, drug addiction), and the type of treatments provided (e.g. support group, 12-step, or in-patient treatment facility). Feel free to provide the website link/address (if any) to share with the class.
