Training and consulting

We provide paid consultation and training for individuals and groups who desire to implement harm reduction practices within their organizations. As the landscape of drug use, both licit and illicit continues to take shape, SPW remains a leader in best practices that address both organizational needs and best outcomes for clients.

We offer a sliding scale and will work with you to meet your budget.

Upcoming Public Trainings

Learn more about how to prevent, recognize and respond to an opioid overdose, including how to use the life-saving medication Naloxone/Narcan. Free Naloxone kits provided!

This training is geared toward professionals who work with folks who use substances and folks at risk of opioid overdose.
Community members interested in attending are ALWAYS welcome, but we recognize the potential privacy and safety concerns folks may have in such mixed company.

“The polls were fun, the lack of stuffiness is always appreciated, the way it was established as a safe space to share and the consistent reiteration via vulnerable sharing.”

Attendee of our harm reduction certification course

"I just wanted to say thank you so much for taking the time to talk to my classes today. I have a strong feeling that you not only opened people's eyes, your presentation will give people hope in their personal lives. The work you all do is just incredible, and the kindness and authenticity you bring to the presentation makes it that much better."
