Course Description

Substance use disorder is a complex condition in which problematic patterns of substance use may interfere with a person’s life and lead to physical and/or psychological dependence and withdrawal symptoms. It is commonly known as addiction or problematic use of substances and can range from mild to severe.

The majority of students will not develop a substance use disorder when cannabis is legalized, but there are risks of harm associated with use. Signs and symptoms of problematic use among students include not showing up to classes or other activities, difficulty with memory or concentration, and putting substance use ahead of school work or other obligations.
