Abstract

Social workers have traditionally focused on treatment rather than prevention, thus working with people on the more severe end of the substance use continuum. In recent years, public health social work --with more of a focus on primary, secondary and tertiary prevention --has become more prominent. Additionally, social workers have a holistic focus of illness and condition, identifying biological, psychological and social factors impacting a person's health.
