TOP REVIEWS FROM THE ADDICTED BRAIN
This course has really helped me gain thorough knowledge and research direction in this field. Thank you Prof. Michael Kuhar for the wonderful course material and very good examples.
I learned a lot from this course that I have been able to use in a ministry capacity. If you are trying to help others with addiction or understand it for yourself, this is the course for you.
very informative and well constructed
However, a bit biased towards negative effects of certain drugs without talking about their positive effects that are supported by research as well
I liked the course very much. And hope more and more people will take it and share the obtained information with others, so we can prevent the society from taking the drugs.
