VSA e-learning resource
We are pleased to launch our new Volatile Substance Abuse (VSA) e-learning resource for the Alcohol and Drug Partnership workforce. This resource was developed with funding from the Scottish Government and with support from NHS Scotland. Re-Solv would like to thank the Scottish Government for supporting VSA prevention.
As The Road to Recovery: A New Approach to Tackling Scotland’s Drug Problem makes explicit, all types of substance misuse must have a treatment option. Having identified gaps in service provision for VS-users, we have developed a tool kit for professionals. The toolkit will increase professionals’ knowledge of VSA, enabling it to be more readily integrated into their service delivery.
Who is this resource for?
Designed for either in-house delivery or individual use, the resource will be of relevance to any organisation or stakeholder that requires a sound knowledge on the issue of VSA. Healthcare, counsellors, education departments, social work agencies, Trading Standards, protective services, community organisations and others can benefit from an increased understanding of the specific issues and dangers surrounding VSA.
The resource includes:
- Resource Guide VSA Training Resource Guide
- Resource Introduction VSA Training Introduction
- Toolkit 1: VSA – Still a problem? PowerPoint and PDF
- Toolkit 2: VSA – Legal and Lethal PowerPoint and PDF
- VSA Audio interviews – Interview 1 & Interview 2
- Volatile Substance Misuse: Legal and Lethal – Support video (see opposite)
The video above – Volatile Substance Misuse: Legal and Lethal – has been produced as part of this project.
