A Healthy and Drug-Free Workforce

Alcohol and drug abuse is widespread within our society. It affects many of our industries in many different ways. Although national, state, and local efforts have shown encouraging results in detecting employees under the influence, the problem of alcohol and drug abuse in the workplace remains to be a serious issue.

Definition of Recovery

The word recovery is a general term that is used to explain a transitional time in life; whether it is an athlete recovering from a knee injury, a family member who is recovering from losing a loved one, a child recovering from a mental illness, or an adult recovering from an addiction.

Wrap Around

The journey to recovery can be difficult for an individual with a mental illness and/or addiction. This can be particularly true for a youth or young adult who is dealing with a mental illness and/or addiction along with the everyday challenges of growing up.

When you’re facing mental health, addiction, or trauma, making the decision to get help is an enormous first step. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed. What’s out there? What can you afford? Who can you trust? We are here to guide you to the resources to help you get to where you want to be. Download our Richland County Community Contacts 1-Pager for contact information.
