Drug and Alcohol Course: Course on Drug and Alcohol for Supervisors or Employees

Drug and Alcohol Course: Course on Drug and Alcohol for Supervisors or Employees – A drug and alcohol course wont be of much value to your audience if it does not help them think about their own alcohol and drug use, a person’s drug and alcohol use that they know very well, or their family experiences that have shaped their opinions and deeply engrained beliefs about what alcoholism and drug addiction really is.

In addition, many social, safety, and economic concerns can be attributed to this serious illness. For example, the frequency of divorce, suicide, and abuse is significantly higher in families where one or more suffer from this disease. One should know . . . many alcoholics deny having a problem at all. In such instances an intervention may be necessary in order to help them start treatment. However, the best method of intervention is sometimes as simple as another alcoholic sharing their own story and how they found recovery. This keeps the ego out of the discussion, which lessens the chances of one becoming defensive — something that is likely among those who are true alcoholics. Treatment in cases of alcoholism usually include detoxification, counseling and most successfully the time-tested and proven 12-Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous.
