Opioid and substance abuse and addiction are part of the first responder culture and often they are not recognized and addressed as a problem until it's too late. Utilizing decades of experience working with front-line officers and law enforcement leadership, Dr. McDougall will provide a poignant and powerful examination of a problem that affects nearly every law enforcement agency and organization. This training delves into the statistics of officers with dependencies, how and why it starts, and what preventative measures can be employed to reduce the likelihood of substance abuse and addiction. Proven solutions will include tactics for the individual officer and policy guidelines for agencies. As a recognized and awarded speaker and trainer at national and international conferences, Dr. McDougall doesn't just present information. Participants will be engaged in discussions and debates, and leave with material that can be immediately applied to improve or even save the lives of law enforcement officers.
