Cocaine and Crack and other Stimulants

Duration: 1 day or 2 day course

Who is the course for: Workers with previous drugs training or experience, who need to develop more detailed awareness of cocaine and crack use. The one day course offers an overview with less chance to explore development issues.

It explores how stimulants work on the brain, and how this can lead to dependency and the impact on mental health. The course looks at key interventions to support change amongst stimulant users.
