Foundational Fridays- Drug 101

- This webinar focuses basic knowledge about the drugs that are commonly used by participants at Syringe Service Programs (SSPs). We will review basic information about how drugs are used, why they are used, and ways to reduce the harms from using drugs. The training will provide an overview of how to engage program participants/clients in conversations around the way they are using drugs and potential harms that can be reduced. Webinar participants will learn how to use Harm Reduction methods to engage with people who use drugs and better understand their experience by the end of this workshop, participants will be able to describe types of drugs commonly used, discuss factors surrounding drug use and list three harm reduction ideas to reduce drug-related risk.
