If you work with or wish to be able to support people you may recognise there are many barriers to hinder us from fulfilling our potential. You may have personal and direct experience of addiction and would like to know if this is an area you could help others in. Being able to understand and support  somebody through the impact of addiction can be both equally rewarding and challenging.  You may be at the beginning of your journey and would like to know if the area of addiction is right for you. Perhaps people have told you that you would make a good drug worker and you have a natural ability to help people open up. This course is a basic introduction to Understanding Addiction and on completion, you gain a Certificate from Fircroft College.
