Please join us for the continuation of the National Alcohol Forum: Implications of COVID-19 webinar series. Our next webinar will explore approaches that can be implemented in the community to support people living with alcohol use disorders during the pandemic.
People with substance use concerns are being disproportionately impacted by stresses related to the pandemic. Recent polling suggests that more than four in 10 people with past or current substance use disorders have been drinking more alcohol since March 2020. At the same time, many treatment and support services have moved online or adapted their in-person services to comply with pandemic restrictions.
Don’t miss this opportunity to engage with experts and learn more about alcohol-related community supports and services. Space is limited for this webinar. We encourage you to register early to secure your place as past webinars have reached capacity.
Delivering Community-based Supports for Alcohol Use Disorder During the COVID-19 Pandemic
With access to in-person care limited during the pandemic, accessible community-based supports for people living with alcohol use disorder are crucial. Managed alcohol programs (MAPs) and mobile withdrawal management support (MWMS) services have been implemented in parts of Canada. This webinar will explore how MAPs and MWMS services are providing needed supports to people during the COVID-19 pandemic.
