Reducing the Harm of Alcohol Use

Description: Current research findings have highlighted various factors associated with the steady increase in alcohol consumption over the last several years. The pandemic has forced the American population to deal with unprecedented challenges and many have turned to alcohol to deal with the stress of an unfamiliar and unstable environment. A major portion of these persons don’t meet the criteria of Alcohol Use Disorder, but are at risk of developing serious health problems and other psychosocial consequences. This interactive (90 minute) webinar will present on the risks associated with excessive alcohol consumption, the impact of alcohol on the body, identify tools and approaches for screening alcohol use, and harm reduction strategies to address risk behavior.

Credits: This training meets the requirements for 1.5 renewal hours (CASAC, CPP, CPS) and 1.5 initial hours (CPP, CPS) through New York State’s Office of Addiction Services and Supports (NYS OASAS). Participants must attend the session in its entirety to receive a certificate of completion.
