Addiction 101 Webinar

Understanding addiction and recovery.



Addiction 101 is designed to increase awareness and reduce stigma associated with addiction – both at work and everyday life. It will be held as a webinar series over three days which provides participants with more flexibility to fit the webinars around their work schedule. Each session is 2 – 2.5hrs long.  Blueprint for Learning’s webinar sessions utilise the best of Zoom meeting technology to provide an interactive and engaging learning experience for participants. Participants are supported by a webinar host alongside two facilitators.

The Addiction 101 webinar will be delivered through Zoom. Our webinars are interactive and to get the most out of the sessions, you will need to have:

  • a stable internet connection.
  • your own device as you will be going into breakout rooms.
  • a microphone and camera connected to your device.

If there are multiple participants sitting in the same room, we recommend that everyone uses headphones or uses separate rooms. This stops any feedback or echoes on the online connection.

You are welcome to join the first webinar 15 minutes early, to troubleshoot your tech with our team. If you are unsure if you have suitable technology to enable you to participate in Addiction 101, please contact us  before your first scheduled session, so we can assist with your technology issues. 


Participants will be invited to complete a short interactive e-learning 6 weeks after attending the webinar. These modules have been designed to reinforce some key learnings from the webinar.

Addiction 101 is currently delivered remotely via Zoom, to participants anywhere in New Zealand.
