Drugs in Perspective examines the rapidly changing field of chemical dependency with an emphasis on family dynamics, the impact of family on individuals, and their use of alcohol/drugs. Students will gain a full understanding of the dynamics of chemical dependency and the domino effects that can have on someone's life. Students will also foster and develop an effective perspective on the multifaceted aspects and problems associated with alcohol/drug use, abuse, and addiction.
