The Conway Daily Sun recently featured Addiction Policy Forum’s Responding to Addiction training, a multi-sector training program designed to provide professionals with a comprehensive understanding of addiction science, treatment, recovery, self-care, and resources.
Memorial Hospital in North Conway, New Hampshire, recently hosted the Responding to Addiction training program in their community facilitated by instructor Robin Eldridge Hain to increase knowledge around addiction and promote professional health and wellness.
Terry Leavitt with the Conway Daily Sun reported: “Most of those present at Monday evening's session were nurses, emergency medical technicians and mental health providers. There were also two Berlin police officers present. However, organizers say anyone affected by the disease of addiction would benefit from receiving the training.”
Responding to Addiction is a 2.5-hour, comprehensive training designed to increase knowledge about addiction and develop skills and strategies to help your community. Like CPR, the training program is designed to build the skills to support and respond to someone who needs help. Participants will learn the science of addiction, the signs and symptoms of addiction, evidence-based treatment options, and how to respond to someone in crisis.
