Tackling volatile substance abuse in Scotland

A training programme for the social care workforce
Published on 16 Mar 2011

This training programme for the social care workforce carries detailed information about solvent and volatile substance abuse, together with a range of materials that you can download and refer to again and again. This resource also contains audio interviews, videos, factsheets and in-depth training materials that you'll be able to take away and use in the training of others.

The course is designed for use by staff within Scottish social work departments. These staff may not necessarily be trained in substance misuse issues, but they may be best placed to screen individuals who are vulnerable to substance misuse or to recognise those currently using substances and thereby support the assessment process of individuals.
