Advanced Drugs Awareness

Additional Info

Those working in generic services (Tiers 1 and 2) need to have a good understanding of the complex nature of problem drug use in order to provide support to those who may need, or are receiving, drug treatment.

The course takes an in-depth look at: the causes of drug problems; the challenges of working with problem drug users (using documentary video); the preparation and injection of heroin; smoking crack; what interventions are available; and provides an overview of treatment modalities delivered at Tiers 3 and 4.
