Addiction is often not well understood – even by primary care providers. In addition, a stigma surrounds it, making patients unlikely to volunteer information about their substance use, and care providers reluctant to ask. This section provides the fundamental knowledge and tools required to work with patients with any type of substance use problem.
This section of the Toolkit is now available in French. We will continue to develop the French language version of the Toolkit, one section at a time.
