Course Summary

A marijuana or cannabis substance use disorder can result in significant impairment both mentally and physically.

Clinicians are recommended to observe DSM-5 diagnostic criteria during screening and for diagnosing a cannabis substance use disorder, including new specifiers that may affect an individual’s initial and ongoing treatment plan for recovery.
