Why study the Graduate Certificate in Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drug Studies?

Alcohol, tobacco and other drug use is associated with a significant burden of illness and injury in populations around the globe. In addition, individuals, families and communities experience adverse social harms arising from specific patterns of intoxication, modes of drug use and illicit drug markets. Despite this huge impact, little formal training is available for those responding to substance use and misuse. The Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drug Studies program meets this need by equipping those working in the field with the knowledge and skills they need to make a real difference.

The majority of courses listed in this program are offered in external mode only.
