Brain Injury and Substance Abuse: The Cross-Training Advantage

On receipt of a funding grant from the Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation, a project team of providers from the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (Toronto) and the Toronto Acquired Brain Injury Network met to develop an educational resource for providers working in the fields of Brain Injury and Substance Abuse.

The team developed a video and supporting manual about cross-training advantages in the fields of Brain Injury and Substance Abuse.

The purpose is to:

  • enhance understanding of the functional relationships between Brain Injury and Substance Abuse
  • improve the identification, assessment and treatment of people with both Brain Injury and Substance Abuse problems
  • Increase collaboration between providers in both fields to facilitate more integrated programming.

Additional information can be found on the Substance Use/Brain Injury Bridging Project website - http://www.subi.ca

The Manual
The accompanying manual is available here as a free download.

The manual is free and may be copied as free of charge.
