Intro to Addiction & Recovery for Community partners

This training is for anyone involved or working with those who suffer from SUD and wish to understand addiction and recovery more to better engage with those they work with or their loved ones.

We know addiction has taken a toll on families, and a strain on human service workers across the continuum. The mission of this course is to provide foundational, essential information for passionate human service workers working with those with addiction such as Law Enforcement, Emergency Services, Social Workers, Family Court Systems, EAPs, Human Resource Workers, Nurses, Physicians, and of course family members and loved ones.

In this course, you will learn that improved outcomes can be achieved by all community partners through learning about recovery from those who survived it. This course will provide a foundational understanding of the grueling process of recovery. Participants will learn about behaviors of addiction, why do people return to use under such severe circumstances, and stages of recovery.

Your work is vital, and you can improve outcomes for families and communities by learning about the foundations of addiction and recovery. You will feel more confident about the work you do and the recommendations you make.

Recently delivered to the Florida GAL Association, to over 500 participants at each event, the feedback is demonstrative of the benefits of this training in all child welfare service delivery. See the Letter of Recommendation from the Florida GAL Association, ReferenceLtrFloridaGALAssoc.
