Alcohol is STILL a Drug: An Exploratory Webinar Series (March 1, 2022)


The Great Lakes A/MH/PTTC is offering this training for individuals working in HHS Region 5: IL, IN, MI, MN, OH, WI. This training is being provided in response to a need identified by Region 5 stakeholders.



Register to join us on the first Tuesday of each month from 10:00 AM – 10:30 AM Central (11:00 AM – 11:30 AM Eastern). Each session will feature a new expert presenter.




Alcohol is STILL a drug.  The opioid crisis, increase in stimulant misuse, and marijuana legalization dominate the news— yet alcohol remains the number one substance causing health, social, legal and financial problems throughout the US. 


While this series will focus on the hopefulness of recovery from alcohol use disorder, we’ll also take a deep dive into what we know about the full impact of alcohol overuse and the ways it affects every person in the US.


This session will provide an introduction to Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) including general information about the risks of alcohol intake during pregnancy, the negative impact on the developing fetus, as well as how to prevent it.



These are the overall learning objectives for the full 10-session series: 

  1. Summarize the current impacts of problematic alcohol use in various/special populations, including pregnant women, youth, rural, and minority populations. 
  1. Assess and prioritize alcohol reduction efforts in targeted settings. 
  1. Describe the current efforts to curb problematic alcohol use, including best practices in providing treatment. 




Certificates of attendance will be emailed to all participants who attend the sessions in full.
