Substance use, intoxication and withdrawal management is a workshop for workers who have completed Blueprint for Learning’s Addiction 101 workshop or similar or have experience working in the addiction space in either a community or clinical setting.

The workshop will help workers 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
