Understanding Addiction: An Overview for Corrections Professionals

According to the National Institutes of Health, drug addiction and crime continue to be linked; yet justice-involved individuals still do not receive needed treatment. The Principles of Drug Abuse Treatment for Criminal Justice Populations, developed by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, directs that treatment for addicted individuals should target factors associated with criminal behavior; that criminal justice supervision should incorporate treatment planning; and that treatment providers should be aware of correctional supervision requirements.

This course will provide corrections and community corrections professionals with information on addiction and common treatment approaches to enhance their understanding of factors that may affect their supervision and management of individuals with addiction issues. This introduction includes an overview of risk factors associated with addiction and prominent treatment strategies. It will also provide an overview of the biopsychosocial model of addiction, which emphasizes the interplay of biological, psychological, and social factors that contribute to addiction.
