Addiction Studies

Addiction Studies provide students with an understanding of the use and problems associated with alcohol, tobacco, and other psychoactive drugs. Students investigate fundamental concepts about drug use and drug users, psychoactive drug use, the nature of addiction and dependency, and behaviour change. Students will also gain knowledge and understanding of Australian and international approaches to drug policy, intervention initiatives, alcohol and other drug counselling skills, and evidence-based approaches to reducing harm.

Graduates may choose interesting and dynamic career pathways in a range of health promotion agencies, not-for-profit organisations, research centres, welfare agencies, corrective services, and within the justice sector.
