Substance Abuse Awareness and Prevention Training
Substance use and addiction are big topics to handle when caring for children/youth today. It’s important that foster parents feel prepared and supported in navigating such important topics with the children/youth in their home.
This training provides the following support:
- a general overview of trends in the use of substances by youth.
- signs and red flags to look for when worried a child/youth may be using substances
- ideas for how to have conversations with children/youth about substance use
This training will be facilitated by the Burke Recovery. Burke Recovery is a local nonprofit agency that offers substance use treatment and prevention for adults and adolescents.
