Training Overview Description

This program will review some of the basic information on harm reduction treatment with individuals who use substances. Total abstinence is not always the answer, especially in low risk situations and with younger drug users. Understanding that there are alternatives to finding a path to recovery allows clients to open up about their struggles, feeling secure in setting their own goals, and normalizing the relapses that all addiction professions know will occur. This webinar will include recent research findings on clinician acceptance of harm reduction treatment.
