All students in clinically oriented programs would benefit from SUD training that is infused in all courses across the curriculum along with courses specific to SUD. Introducing students to the basics of SUD in their early training would begin the process of their being cognizant of the possibility of any client/patient having SUD concerns. As the student moves through their course sequence they would be gradually exposed to increasingly more material on the complexity of SUD on the client/patient, the family, the workplace, and the community. Courses specific to SUD and EBT would further prepare students interested in focusing their clinical practice with those who have SUD. Preparing students in such a way would help to assure that they recognize and appropriately treat those suffering from SUD.
