Drug overdose deaths have reached a historic high, devastating families and communities. Social workers on the frontlines help teens and families deal with the consequences of substance misuse through treatment and support services and mitigate its impact through harm-reduction strategies. But what can social workers do to help prevent youth from misusing substances or developing substance use disorders?

This workshop will focus on an ‘upstream’ approach to substance misuse. We will learn about prevention science and explore effective strategies to prevent substance use among adolescents, equipping them with the knowledge and tools necessary to make a lasting impact. We will analyze substance use trends and local data, identify risk and protective factors that influence substance misuse, and learn how to engage our communities equitably to help young people make healthy choices about substance use.

General Admission: $60**
