Addiction is a many-faceted problem that manifests itself in many different ways: alcoholic disease, addiction to medicines or drugs and various eating disorders as well as addiction to intangible things all fall under the general heading of addiction. The chronic advance of the addiction process poses particular problems in the counselling, supervision and treatment of addicts and makes prevention of addiction especially important.
The increase in substance abuse and addiction is causing a rising need for trained persons in the social, health and education systems, people who in addition to being educated in medicine, psychology and social work are able to cope with the demands of addiction counselling and prevention and can introduce appropriate measures at various levels and at the earliest possible time.
The course is carried out in collaboration with the ÖAGG (Austrian Working Group on Group Therapy and Group Dynamics).
