NNLM New England Webinar Series, Part 2 - Connecting Resources to a Community in Need: Worcester Police Addiction Recovery (WPAR) Program
Connecting Resources to a Community in Need: Worcester Police Addiction Recovery (WPAR) Program is the second in the Substance Use Disorder Webinar Series, presented by the National Network of Library of Medicine New England Region.
Learn how to recognize the signs of substance use that are often overlooked. Communities often have resources available to help those with substance use disorder, as well as help for their families. Because of the stigma this disease carries, many people do not talk about their struggles or how they found help.
A city police officer and a recovery coach from the city of Worcester will share the program they have developed to help those in need to find the pathway to recovery. Learn what you can do to alleviate the stigma associated with this disease.
