The Human Trafficking/Substance Abuse Relationships Training

  • Towson University, Smith Hall, Room 0264 8000 York Rd Towson, MD, 21252 United States (map)

This training is for Service providers who work with survivors of human trafficking and other at-risk youth and young adult populations (homeless, runaway).  Many Survivors not only suffer the effects of physical and mental trauma, but also the effects of substance abuse and many times substance addiction.  We will talk about the effects of these trauma situations, the possible relationship of illegal street drugs, addiction, treatment, the treatment referral system, the current overdose situation, etc.
