Pre- and post-test data of the program show a positive effect on students’ motivation, their confidence, and their willingness to work with people who have substance use disorders.
Students not only finished the program with these proactive attitudes, some measured qualities persisted. When remeasured after three year’s time, therapeutic commitment and confidence remained elevated.
