- a comprehensive education and awareness programme
One of the most effective ways of tackling drug and alcohol misuse is through education and awareness and this programme is designed for employers wishing to train groups of employees to recognise and become aware of the problems and systems of abuse. For example, colleagues working in Human Resources or Employee Well-being, or those with line management responsibility for individuals particularly at risk from substance abuse. The course runs for 5 days and is fully certificated course. Some of the subjects covered include:
the process of addiction
the medical consequences of alcohol/drugs
how and why people start using alcohol and drugs
the impact of drug/alcohol misuse in the workplace
spotting potential problems and early interventions
how to tackle potential problems with employees
possible treatments for addiction
lifestyle and well-being advice
Employers can send individual delegates or, if required, a bespoke programme can be delivered to a closed group of employees.
The Drug & Awareness Programme is held at our San Pedro practice and lunch will be supplied. For delegates travelling from out of the region or overseas, accommodation is provided in a local 5 star hotel, with all transfers from the hotel to the medical practice included in the cost (approx. 5 minutes). If required, for closed groups training can be delivered in the employer's place of business or at an alternative venue.
