enCompass: A Comprehensive Training on Navigating Addiction is a resource for family members who are trying to navigate the complex world of addiction and help loved ones achieve recovery. This training includes basic definitions, as well as in-depth information about substance use disorders, treatment options, communication strategies, and self-care tips. This training and manual were created by the Addiction Policy Forum staff in partnership with the RecoveryOhio Initiative in the Office of Ohio Governor Mike DeWine.
