Impact Evaluation of Addiction 101

Addiction 101 is a one-day addiction literacy programme aiming to increase awareness and reduce the stigma associated with addiction. Workshops are provided by Blueprint for Learning with funding from the Ministry of Health. Addiction 101 workshops have been developed to give attendees greater confidence to:

  • use Te Whare Tapa Whā to understand addiction and recovery
  • recognise signs of addiction issues
  • relate brain and body responses to addiction and recovery
  • respond supportively to people experiencing addiction issues.

Addiction 101 has been designed for people in organisations and communities. It is also suitable for anyone without training or qualifications in the sector who is interested in learning about addiction and recovery.

This impact evaluation was conducted by Te Pou and published in July 2021. This report shares the findings from a small impact evaluation exploring how participants have maintained and used their learning after attending an Addiction 101 workshop or webinar series. It focuses on how any changes in confidence and understanding were maintained four to eight months after the workshops.
