Introducing, our latest series of workshops, “ASSIST-Lite: How to manage substance use using the ultra-rapid screen”

In 2-3 minutes, the ASSIST-Lite can help identify the risks associated with a person’s substance use. Combined with tailored brief advice, it can raise awareness about the risks associated with their use and help a person make more positive choices.

In this workshop, you will learn how to administer the ASSIST-Lite and linked Brief Intervention so you can comfortably start to manage substance use within your workplace.
