Paraphilia refers to intense and persistent sexual interests that fall outside the realm of what is considered phenotypically normal. In addition to clinical disorders in DSM-5, there are also several small sections devoted to other disorders and considerations for diagnosis. Those will be included in this course. This course, then, will include an overview of disorders that warrant consideration, paraphilic disorder, and other disorders and conditions that should be part of a diagnostic assessment.

The DSM-5 chapter immediately following Disruptive, Impulse-Control, and Conduct Disorders is a very extensive chapter on Substance Related and Addictive Disorders. The substance-related and addictive disorders are in some respects very similar to the disruptive, impulse-control, and conduct disorders because, like the latter, they are characterized by a tendency to act impulsively without regard to the consequences. In fact, many individuals with a history of early onset conduct disorder become substance users. In contrast to the numerous substance-related disorders covered in this chapter, only one non-substance-related disorder is discussed, which is gambling disorder. This course includes the necessary information to help you understand all of these disorders, starting with a broad overview of substance-related disorders in general, and then more detailed coverage of disorders for specific substances. Lastly, you will find a full description of the addictive behavioral pattern that meets the diagnostic criteria for gambling disorder.

Methamphetamines are believed to be the second most commonly tried drug after marijuana. An estimated 13 million individuals in the U.S. have tried methamphetamines at least once in their lives, and there are an estimated 50 million users world-wide (Richards, 2014). Despite the frequent use of this drug, there are frightening side effects with methamphetamines.

Relapse after the successful completion of a substance abuse treatment program is often devastating to those who were in recovery as well as traumatic for their families. Unfortunately, relapse is common for individuals who complete substance abuse treatment. In fact, anywhere from 40 to 60% of those who complete a treatment program eventually relapse. While many substance abuse professionals argue that relapse is part of recovery, relapse threatens to undermine addiction recovery. Relapse prevention provides individuals who have completed a substance abuse program with the resources and support needed to maintain long-term sobriety. With effective relapse prevention, the number of patients who achieve permanent sobriety from substance use can be increased. This course will discuss the importance of relapse prevention therapy and the effective approaches and premises of relapse prevention. Also, we will also explore the skills needed as a counselor in the treatment of relapse prevention.

Substance use is believed to be particularly high among individuals who suffer from anxiety disorders, which is attributed to a belief that drug and alcohol use reduces anxiety and tension. Furthermore, there is a belief that a reciprocal, causal relationship exists between anxiety and substance abuse over time due to the positive relationship between anxiety disorders and alcohol dependence (Doughty & Hunt, 1999) (ADAA, 2015) (Lingford-Hughes, Potokar & Nutt, 2002). Because individuals who suffer from anxiety disorders are more likely to self-medicate with alcohol and/or illicit drugs, treating co-occurring anxiety and substance abuse has been a challenge for behavioral health professionals. In addition, co-occurring anxiety and substance abuse also has a high possibility of relapse. An integrated approach with relapse prevention may be the most effective treatment for co-occurring anxiety and substance dependence. Behavioral health professionals need to be trained to effectively provide the treatment approaches to make integrated programs successful. This course will explore what anxiety disorders are before taking an in-depth look at the relationship between substance abuse and anxiety. Also discussed are evidence based practices proven effective for individuals with both an anxiety disorder and substance dependence.
