Substance use assistance

Some young people who are going through the difficult transition to adulthood may turn to alcohol or drugs as a way to cope with life’s challenges. Unfortunately, those who become dependent on alcohol and drugs often have a hard time getting or keeping a job. This can lead to long-term financial instability along with other problems and hardships. If you or someone you know is struggling with addiction, help is available, and recovery is possible.
