CPD Events for Drug and Alcohol Testing

These talks draw on her years of handling drug and alcohol cases through the Probation Services, A&E, and General Practice.

Dr Catherine Pyves will lead us through two engaging sessions where we’ll cover:

1. Understanding Common Drugs:

Learn about different drugs, how they’re used, their effects, and how we test for them. Discuss why certain test results can be challenged in court.

2. Choosing the Right Tests for Family Court Cases:

  • Find out which tests are best for building a strong case without breaking the bank.
  • Understand why test results can sometimes give the wrong impression.

3. Medical Insights and Substance Misuse:

  • When do we need a medical professional’s opinion, even if the tests seem clear?
  • See how past and current drug use can affect children’s safety…

4. Detecting Multiple Drugs:

  • Learn techniques to spot when someone’s using different drugs or swapping them out.

5. Supporting Families:

  • Discover ways to help families stay together, even with drug misuse.
  • Find out how to make sure treatment keeps working.
