Addiction, dependency and recovery

The Training Exchange
Delivery Method: Virtual

We will deliver the training to a smaller group in a large room. We have been working closely with the venue to ensure we have Covid-safe measures and clear guidance in place.

If for any reason the course cannot be delivered face-to-face (e.g. guidance changes, there is a local lock-down, the trainer has symptoms), we will take a flexible and responsive approach to keep people learning – which will include delivering the training on the same day as a live interactive online session, or transferring bookings to the next available dates.

UPDATE: This training will now be delivered online.


Exploring the role of drugs within society, the factors that contribute to the drug using experience, how people change and the routes to recovery. Learn what tolerance, withdrawal, addiction and dependency mean and how this relates to a clear understanding of recovery.
