Here's what we found for you

There are 15 topics and 21 local resources that match your search for Substance use.
  • Substance use: childhood

    Unfortunately, substance use is becoming an increasing concern for younger children in our community. Children who develop drug and alcohol dependencies early in life often experience problems in the classroom, which can lead to long-lasting disadvantages in life. Find community-based prevention and recovery resources, including youth counseling, to help support children whose young lives are touched by addiction.

    • Prescription opioids & heroin
      More than ever, our community is aware of the dangers of heroin and opiate addiction. However, prescription drugs are still readily available and used by young adults in Stark County. A person may be prescribed opioids to support their recovery, and then unwillingly become addicted. When these individuals are refused additional prescriptions, heroin is often the go-to because it is easily accessible. If you or someone you know is struggling with heroin or opiate use, find local detox, treatment and recovery programs.
      • Substance use: young adults

        Addiction is a complex problem. People who struggle with substance use physically and psychologically crave a drug, even when they know the adverse effect it has on their body, their relationships and their community. Stark Help Central is committed to helping young people to overcome their addictions and develop into productive, stable adults. Find local resources dedicated to supporting young people who are affected by substance use.

        • CHANCE Program Helps People with Substance Use in Stark County

          • LGBTQ+ bullying
            Bullying can have lasting negative effects on LGBTQ+ youth. It can cause anxiety and depression, relationship problems, low self-esteem, substance use and even thoughts of suicide. Young people who are being bullied should seek out adult allies who are safe and confident. Adults who display rainbows in their offices, wear pins to show their support, or have Safe Zone stickers are likely good places to turn.
            • Drugs & alcohol
              Young people may turn to alcohol and drugs as a way to numb emotional pain from personal trauma or as result of peer influence. Youth substance use is a key contributor to problems at school, poor social relationships, motor vehicle accidents and mental health issues. With professional treatment, recovery is possible.
              • Basic needs: adulthood

                Stark County offers a wide range of basic needs services from food, medicine and family assistance as well as targeted services for veterans, those in substance abuse recovery, homeless persons, parents and more.

                • Immediate assistance

You are not alone and talking to someone could help save a life.

                  • Children with incarcerated parents
                    Having a parent in prison can have a significant impact on a child’s mental and behavioral health. To help reduce the risk for negative outcomes, such as depression, substance use and criminal behavior, it is important for communities to wrap around children with incarcerated parents.
                    • Domestic violence: youth & teens

                      Unfortunately, more than two-thirds of children have been exposed to domestic violence by the age of 17. Witnessing violence can have long-term impacts on these adolescents, putting them at higher risk for substance use, eating disorders, risky sexual behavior and even further domestic violence. Find resources to help prevent violence in the home and support young people experiencing domestic violence in Stark County.

                      • Human Trafficking
                        The growing rates of sexual exploitation in Stark County are due in part to our prominent interstate system, sports facilities, strip clubs and hotel developments – common environments for this hidden crime. Find resources to help combat sex trafficking in Northeast Ohio.
                        • 6 Ways to Help a Loved One Through Addiction

                          Addiction leaves countless individuals and their loved ones reeling from its devastating impact. As a disease, addiction is frequently misunderstood and stigmatized. Beyond the stereotypical images of substance use, addiction can have behavioral and psychological effects.   

                          If you’re helping someone with addiction issues, the first thing is to know there is always hope and a way forward.

                            • Improve Family Dialogs with StarkMHAR Conversation Cards

                              Once your family is seated around the dinner table, the typical conversation starter is: “So, how was your day?”

                              And the typical answer? “Fine.”

                              Getting your child to say anything more can be a lot of work.

                              But what if you stopped thinking of the child’s attitude as the problem, and started with the question? What if there were some truly interesting questions you could ask your family? And what if they were excited to think about them and answer?

                              • Men’s Mental Health

                                Sometimes you might hear the terms mental wellness or mental health and think they mean the same thing. While they are connected, they actually mean two different things. What the difference?  Mental Wellness is your overall mental wellbeing, and everyone has it! Mental wellness is when people can recognize their abilities, cope with typical stress, work and function well.  In order to be mentally well, we have to take care of our minds just like we do the rest of our body.
