Please note: the final of three workshops will be held in Havelock North at the Havelock North Function Centre - Lantern Gallery.

Te Pou is pleased to offer workers in health services evidence-based training to support you to:

  • understand the function of substance use and the impact of stigma on help seeking
  • recognise harmful and risky substance use
  • develop practical strategies to assess and manage behavioural disturbance due to intoxication and withdrawal
  • recognise and respond to withdrawal.

The workshops will also explore:

  • how to engage with people who use substances
  • what is harm reduction
  • how to provide harm reduction advice for people who continue to use substances
  • how to refer to specialist addiction services
  • other community supports.

To meet Covid 19 social distancing requirements, we are holding three workshops (19th November, 26th November - in Napier, and 10th December - in Havelock North) limited to 15 attendees per workshop. If you have any queries please contact
