Worksite culture sets the tone for its employees- and having a supportive work environment where managers reinforce a sound wellness strategy can keep employees motivated and engaged. These offerings are designed to drive and reinforce healthy behaviors, bringing benefits to employers, their employees and our community.
Addiction 101 Training
Addiction 101 is an hour long overview of addiction. This training will use nicotine addiction as an example to explain brain chemistry, psychological dependence and habits that control addictive behaviors.
While non-addicted individuals in the community may believe people who use substances like tobacco and other drugs have “bad habits” and should will themselves to stop, there are facets to addiction that make quitting difficult. In this session, participants will learn the basics of what it means to be addicted, and will look at elements of prevention, intervention, treatment and recovery that make healthier lifestyles possible for all.
This session is appropriate for managers, employees and family members who are interested in finding solutions to address the burden of addiction in our worksites and community.
