Addiction 101

Understanding addiction and recovery.

Our workshop

During Addiction 101, you will: 

  • use Te Whare Tapa Whā to understand addiction and recovery
  • recognise signs of addiction issues
  • relate brain and body responses to addiction
  • respond supportively to people experiencing addiction issues.
