Osborn, Cynthia J.; Lewis, Todd F.
Journal of Teaching in the Addictions, v3 n2 p41-56 2004

Methods used for introducing, incorporating, and processing these experiences are discussed and student reactions to and evaluations of the assignments are included. Recommendations for expanding and enhancing experiential training efforts and evaluation in substance abuse training are provided.
