Preventing Addiction Related Suicide (PARS) Web

Technology No. 49414
Preventing Addiction Related Suicide is a prevention intervention provided to addiction treatment patients who are at higher risk of suicide. PARS is a 2–3-hour PowerPoint-based, interactive group session that focuses on future suicide prevention, not acute treatment. Prior to PARS, no evidence-based suicide prevention intervention had been developed for alcohol/drug addiction treatment populations.

PARSWeb is a training for addiction specialists and counselors to help deliver the PARS intervention to their patients/clients in group settings. These materials were developed in collaboration with the AIMS Center and Dr. Richard Ries. The PARSWeb Manual and Training are both being made available at a no or a low cost in hopes of increasing access to this life saving intervention in Washington and across the country.
