Alcohol & Drugs in Housing: What to Know and What to Do (C, H) UPDATED to include Heroin & Opioids


This training introduces intervention techniques for dealing with alcohol and drug abuse, including heroin and opioids, in the context of housing developments. Participants will examine how their own attitudes towards substance abuse affect the way they perceive their role as a service provider. They will learn how to recognize alcohol and drug abuse and what they can and cannot do about it, including how to stage an intervention and properly document a case for eviction when necessary.
