Learn More About Addiction Based Behaviour

Real world solutions to challenging problems.

As a security professional, you may have noticed an increase in substance abuse and addiction-related behaviour on or around your site. Responding to these types of behaviour requires a constantly evolving set of skills that can be challenging to keep up with. 

At SCOPE Safety & Security, we understand the importance of staying up-to-date with the latest strategies and techniques for Engaging with Homeless Populations. That's why we've listened to feedback from our students and developed an upgrade to our popular Engaging with Homeless Populations: Basics course. 

Our new course, Engaging with Homeless Populations: Addictions, takes a deeper dive into addiction-based behaviour concerns and provides you with the tools you need to respond more safely and confidently to these situations. This supplement course is a must-have for any security professional working with chronically addicted individuals. 

Enroll today to bring your skills to the next level and ensure that you're ready to handle any situation that comes your way.
