Health and Wellness

A focus on wellness practices can help people working in the field of substance use and addictions, and also people experiencing them.

Wellness occurs across many connected dimensions, including emotional, physical, occupational, intellectual, financial, social, environmental, and spiritual. Practices can influence sleep, stress reduction, physical activity, nutrition, spirituality, mindset, and other elements of health.

A regional Addiction Technology Transfer Center produced the helpful overview Work and Well-Being: A Guide for Addiction Professionals. Resources in this section provide additional ideas and practical tips for organizations and workers to support health and wellness of staff and participants.
