Course Objectives
Course Overview:
Date: February 23, 2021
Time: 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. Eastern

The number of inmates coming into our facilities today with substance abuse issues is alarming. Unfortunately, in many instances, we are the first line of defense in determining whether these individuals are assessed, and proper care is provided. It’s critical that our staff are trained in recognizing the signs and symptoms of both intoxication and withdrawal so prompt intervention can be requested. This training will provide correctional level training in identifying behaviors prompting staff to make medical and/or mental health referrals if needed.
