Do you care about someone struggling with a substance use disorder/addiction? SHaW has training that can help! When you complete the training session, our hope is that you will be able to confidently support individuals by: • Understanding the complex nature of addiction as a disease and that substance use disorders often cannot be resolved by the individual simply choosing to stop. • Confronting myths and stigma regarding addiction and recovery and how its negative impact deters individuals from seeking support • Using empathetic language when a person chooses to honor you by disclosing that they are struggling with substance use. • Being available to effectively listen and use tactful communication techniques to respond to those who express the need for support. • Defining and understanding that recovery is a life-time journey with multiple pathways to achieving wellness in recovery. • Knowing available recovery support resources that are on and off campus and how to access them. Register for a session at https://studenthealth.uconn.edu/recovery/. Anyone in the larger UConn Community is welcome!
