BUILDING SKILLS FOR LIFE AND RECOVERY

Individuals who have suffered trauma are still individuals, with individual challenges and individual strengths. Coming to terms with the long-term consequences of trauma can require acquisition of new skills order to achieve sustainable recovery, and these skills need to be learned and practised in a supportive learning environment.

EVALUATION AND FOLLOW-UP – THE KEY TO SUCCESS

With limited resources and a shared responsibility for public addiction treatment you have to make sure funding is spent on effective interventions. By strategically using evidence-based tools for evaluation and quality assurance you can make sure that the resources are put into effective, long-term and sustainable interventions and possibilities for the creation of new tools are formed.
