High Society - Costs and Consequences

15 Hours
This course is based on the evocative material presented by Joseph A. Califano Jr. in his compelling book High Society: How Substance Abuse Ravages America and What to Do About It.

 Years of study and research are clearly presented from CASA, the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University in New York City. Every family and friend has been touched by substance abuse which causes and aggravates the nation’s most wrenching social problems – violent and property crimes, soaring health care costs, family breakup, domestic violence and child abuse, the spread of AIDS, teenage pregnancy, poverty and low productivity. The book’s cover states that ‘High Society” is “an inspiring call to end the denial, stamp out the stigma associated with alcoholism and drug addiction, and commit the energy and resources to confront a plague that has maimed and killed more Americans than all our wars, natural catastrophes, and traffic accidents combined.”
