Public Education and Awareness

Amethyst is dedicated to the belief that accurate information is an important component of responding to addiction at both the individual and community level. As a result then, Amethyst staff is available to provide training or workshops to interested community groups about women and addiction. Workshops are tailor-made to suit the needs of the agency or department staff. Previous workshops include:

  • Women and Addiction
  • Women, Violence, and Addiction
  • Feminist Perspectives on Addiction
  • Women and Problem Gambling

Let us know if you are interested in having us develop a training or workshop to meet your needs.
