Over the past few decades great advances have been made towards understanding the psychology of substance use disorders (SUDs) and addictions. This five-part series is designed to provide psychologists and psychology students with cutting-edge information about SUDs and addictive behaviors. This series is a collaboration with the American Psychological Association Office of Continuing Education in Psychology, the APA Science Directorate, the APA Center for Learning and Career Development, the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, and the Society of Addiction Psychology (Division 50 of APA).

In addition, the American Psychological Association, in consultation with Carlo DiClemente, Ph.D., and made possible through grant funding from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), has created a Substance Use Disorders curriculum that was designed to address the need for graduate-level psychology education and training in the assessment and treatment of substance use disorders (SUDs). Please access the APA Substance Use Disorders curriculum on the APA Website.
