How to help with substance use impacts - Friday 18 August 2023

This workshop is held in Auckland on Friday 18 August 2023

How to help with substance use impacts is a workshop for workers in community organisations who already have some basic understanding of problematic substance use. The workshop will help workers to:

  • recognise harmful and risky substance use
  • respond safely to substance use issues
  • understand harm reduction approaches
  • support safer withdrawal management.

The workshop will explore:

  • practical strategies to support an intoxicated person with disturbed behaviour
  • how to support a person in withdrawal from alcohol, methamphetamine, and synthetic cannabinoids
  • how to provide harm reduction advice.

If you have little or limited knowledge of problematic substance use, Blueprint for Learning provide Addiction 101, a free one-day introductory workshop or series of online workshops. Attending Addiction 101 will help you get the most out of the above workshop as the content is a significant step up in terms of technical understanding.
