Webinar replay: Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Ecosystem of Care: Pivoting to Save Lives – Part 1

Overview and The Role of Health Promotion and Harm Reduction Strategies

This webinar was held on March 14, 2024. 

This was part 1 of our 3-part webinar series, “Substance Use Disorder Ecosystem of Care: Pivoting to Save Lives.”  In this session, we provided an overview of the series and took a look at the services and support that comprise a system of care for people who are not yet in treatment. These services are often community-based and involve outreach, engagement, and meeting people where they are. As people enter treatment, experience relapse, or choose to move through different treatment modalities, health promotion and harm reduction can serve as a safety net to keep people continuously engaged.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain the differences between prevention, promotion, and harm reduction.
  • Illustrate the primary goal of health promotion.
  • Distinguish the continuum and role of health promotion related to stages of chronic disease: active, controlled, and relapse.
  • Identify role of harm reduction as a health promotion activity in the public sector v. the harm reduction often carried out in CBO/non-profit sector.

Whether you are a healthcare professional, caregiver, or someone personally affected by substance use, this webinar offered a roadmap for navigating the complexities of the Substance Use Care Continuum, fostering hope and resilience in the pursuit of sustained well-being.
