Substance misuse is a complex issue, affecting not only the individuals involved but their friends, families and the people they come into contact with.
Substance abuse can result in lowered educational outcomes, compromised health and danger to the public and affect not only the user but the people around them too.
This course offers you the chance to update your knowledge on drugs and addiction. In it you’ll learn about ‘legal highs’, why drug addiction occurs, and what the law says about possession and supply as well as the impact drugs can have, how people are treated for drug abuse and addiction and how you can best respond to someone who has problems in this area.
This course is a generic substance abuse course and it’s intended for everyone with an interest in the drug addiction.
Although it forms part of an induction programme for new starters, it is also ideal for all people who want to improve their knowledge and continue their professional development.
It is particularly useful for those working with children or vulnerable adults as well as those living with and dealing with people in the grips of substance abuse as well as anyone wanting to access good substance misuse training or gain online substance abuse certification.
The three-module course will cover the different types of drugs and what the law is regarding them. It covers why some people get addicted and what the likely impact is on their body, mind and those around them. It will show you how best to recognise addiction and suggest suitable treatments.
You will learn why some people get addicted, and with what likely impact (on the body, mind and on their families). And you will understand more about addiction (how can you recognise it, and what is the best treatment).
The course contains additional resource materials, useful links and a refresher guide. On completion you will automatically get a certificate, with your name, the CPD hours, the date and learning objectives.
