We will journey through the lived and living experience of people who have substance and process addictions to understand aetiology, dominant discourses and frameworks, and the recovery movement.

You will learn assessment and intervention skills to support recovery oriented evidence based care and augment your reflective practice skills to facilitate safety for yourself and others.
