Currículo de Tratamiento Universal

The Universal Treatment Curriculum (UTC) has been developed by several teams of curriculum developers, including JBS International, SME Consulting, and TTK, with overall coordination by the International Centre for Credentialing and Education of Addiction Professionals (ICCE). It provides a series of training materials for knowledge and skill development of treatment professionals. The aim of the training series is to reduce the significant health, social and economic problems associated with substance use disorders by building international treatment capacity through training, and so expanding the professional global treatment workforce.

UTC is available through the basic and advanced series as well as with several specialist series that focus on populations with special needs, such as women, children, and persons in recovery.

UTC Basic Level Series

The Basic Level UTC consists of eight courses that cover the broad spectrum of treatment for substance use disorders. The content and methodology of the UTC training series is designed to ensure that addiction practitioners develop a balanced perspective of the principles relating to both the science and art of treatment. Each course is intended to enhance the knowledge, skills and competencies of treatment professionals, as well as promote evidence-based practice for the enhancement of service delivery and treatment outcomes.
