This course aims to produce graduates who have both theoretical and practical knowledge around current perspectives and advances in the alcohol and other drug use and gambling fields, and its relationship to other fields including nursing, social work, medicine and psychology.
As work in the addiction field is multidisciplinary, the course will be relevant to a range of professionals including those working directly in the field of addiction or those who wish to specialise in addiction-related issues in their area of expertise. This could include health and allied health clinicians, researchers, academics, teachers, policy-makers or professionals in human resources, justice, the education system or sports administration. The course provides a comprehensive overview of the disciplines that inform addiction science and will provide critical awareness around policy, practice and research. It will allow students to enhance their career prospects towards a number of roles, such as a specialist clinician, treatment service manager, public health planner or policy advisor.
The Master of addictive behaviours is to be offered through the Eastern Health, Turning Point Alcohol and Drug Centre.
