Invitation to Participate: How do we support people with intellectual disability and addictive behaviours?: An exploratory study of addiction counsellors

This study is concerned with the experiences of professionals in the field of intellectual or developmental disability, and professionals in the field of addiction in working with people with learning and developmental disability who display addictive behaviours.

The study will examine these professionals’ opinions on how equipped they are to identify, work with, and aid this group.

The study seeks to gain insight into areas of training and skill building that could be improved to help professionals work more effectively with this vulnerable group.
