Supporting Survivors Experiencing Substance Use

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

For many survivors who use substances, it is a way to cope with the traumatic effects of abuse, while some are also coerced into using by their abusive partner. Providing support to survivors experiencing this dependency can be challenging for any advocate to navigate. Come join the conversation on supporting survivors to make safer choices and encourage self-empowerment as they navigate their recovery. We will explore practical skills for relapse prevention, benefits and barriers to treatment programs, and discuss ways to integrate harm reduction into housing and shelter settings.
