Trauma-informed response training discusses Wisconsin's opioid crisis

WAUWATOSA, Wis. (CBS 58) – Wisconsin’s opioid crisis was front and center during a training session in Wauwatosa. The Department of Health and Services is taking a look at the opioid crisis from a trauma perspective.

Different ways of helping people with addiction are being discussed.

Members with health services says different ways of treatment need to be brought to light.

“I think we are just starting to think about this in a different way. We’ve always known about affliction, we’ve known how to help people achieve abstinence from drugs, how to get them to have long term sobriety is a whole other issue,” said Scott Webb with the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.

This training is funded by a grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
