Working in the substance abuse treatment field presents dilemmas relating to personal beliefs, judgments, and values. The history of how society views persons with addictions is fraught with emotion, misperceptions, and biases that have affected the care of drug abusers.
This course will explore the definition of ethics and how it differs from morality and law. We will look at the terms frequently used, structured processes for solving ethical issues and potential areas of ethical challenges such as recovering addicts as professionals, e-therapy and competence.
