MPOWRD Training Program

Facilitators will be trained personnel in youth outreach and addiction with certified background checks required within their organization. Ideally two facilitators will be present at each meeting.

This program offers a comprehensive approach for individuals planning to offer MPOWRD meetings within their facilities. Redefining addiction, unconditional support, new strategies in empowerment, confidentiality factors, and creating balance and trust, are just several of the key components which will be emphasized at the training. Breakout sessions will be included simulating MPOWRD meetings and strategies. Lesson plans will be reviewed for consistency in approach and outreach.
