This study is an educational evaluation of participants (N = 50) in a 4-day immersion training program funded by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. Using a pretest–posttest design, clinical social work faculty participants showed statistically significant (p < .001) improvement in overall alcohol and other drug-related knowledge (baseline M = 8.75, SD = 2.44; postintervention M = 13.88, SD = 1.96, Cohen’s d = −2.16) in the domains of screening and assessment, brief intervention, medication-assisted treatment, and recovery and relapse prevention. Corresponding increases were also observed for faculty confidence in teaching clinical skills related to alcohol and other drug screening, assessment, and treatment.
