The online Certificate in Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment is a regional, UWI-based on-line continuing education programme in drug demand reduction, which will upgrade the professional qualifications of individuals engaged in national, regional and international efforts to prevent substance abuse in the Caribbean region and beyond. The programme seeks to enhance the regional response to the challenges associated with substance abuse through training and the development of a lasting network of professionals in this field, thereby improving the environment and the quality of care and service for their communities.
