Facilitator: Audrey Batterham & Guest Speaker
This workshop provides a general overview of the substances your clients may be using, how to reduce harms, and prevent overdose. Focusing on the drugs learners have questions about, we will explore what the drugs look like, how drugs may present physically and in behaviours, and how to manage withdrawal symptoms. Learners will gain knowledge in how to recognize, prevent and intervene in downer, upper and psychedelic overdoses. Learners will leave the workshop knowing how to use Naloxone to intervene in an opiate overdose. This workshop is adapted for an online setting and includes discussion, visual aids, games and video.
* Learners are encouraged to follow up the workshop with a trip to the drugstore or harm reduction service to get Naloxone.
