Addiction 101

Addiction 101 is designed to increase awareness and reduce the stigma associated with addiction – both at work and in everyday life. It also provides valuable skills on how to look after your own health and wellbeing.

The workshops use adult education principles, with a variety of activities, videos and teaching tools to cater to the different learning styles of participants. In addition, our expert facilitators bring a wealth of professional and personal experience to the topics covered.
