Training for staff and professionals working in Lanarkshire is available through a variety of sources. Choosing which type of training is suitable for you will greatly depend on various factors which may include:

  • Your Work force development needs
  • Your role in relation to alcohol and drug service provision
  • Current level of competence in dealing with issues around alcohol and drugs and the level of competence you are aiming to attain

Whist Lanarkshire ADP are not a training provider/ organisation, we do seek to assist staff in accessing appropriate routes to support their workforce development needs. We do this by either:

  • Commissioning specific training to equip our drug and alcohol workforce
  • Signpost to appropriate workforce development
  • Endeavour to fund or find funds for staff/ community groups to attend training.
