  3. What are the affects of addiction on families?
  4. A am a carer of someone with an addiction, how do I keep myself well?

(Discount available for VCS)

2 Hour workshops available:

  1. Self-medicating to control stress, anxiety, pain, depression, loneliness, trauma and un-diagnosed mental illnesses are the top reason for abusing drugs and alcohol - understanding the root cause of addictions?
  2. People start to abuse drugs and alcohol because they want to feel better than they do. Whether it is to feel fun, more relaxed or less anxious, using drugs or alcohol to feel better is a gateway to a severe addiction - how to stop before stopping isn't an option.
  3. Help - people in my community may be suffering from an addiction and I don't know how to help.
  4. Spot the signs in the workplace - people's work may be suffering due to an underlying addiction and need the right support.

Cost of workshop - £70 per facilitator
