This article builds on prior research demonstrating that intensive faculty training in alcohol and other drug (AOD) identification and treatment methods can result in increases in AOD knowledge and teaching efficacy. We provide examples of how faculty participants in the Alcohol and Other Drugs Education Program have adapted their teaching in clinical practice, research methods, and addiction specialty courses as a result of participation in our immersion-based training program. Examples from 3 schools provide ideas for teaching innovations and serve as templates for faculty interested in advancing their teaching and the integration of AOD-related content into the social work curriculum.
