If you work in any capacity with preventing or treating substance abuse, you could probably use some help. After all, it’s not an easy job. Addiction has reached unprecedented levels, so it’s not getting any easier.
You may find yourself feeling discouraged at times. With so many people out there struggling, it can seem like there’s no way to win. It can seem like no one wants help or you don’t know how to reach the people that really do. But don’t give up. You’re doing one of the most important jobs on the planet.
We understand this completely. And that’s why we’ve created the Community Outreach Team.
Our team consists of several professionals in the field of substance abuse. Many of us have previously worked for treatment centers and we bring clinical experience to the table. So we know how to reach people and get through to them.
One of the biggest struggles in this field is reaching the public effectively. Whether your message is about awareness, prevention, or treatment, it can be difficult to effectively showcase what you’re doing no matter how noble the cause. Another factor is that you may find yourself spending so much time working with people individually, that you have no time or ability to reach others.
It can become an ethical conflict, as your workload often prevents you from helping more people. Taking time away from those in front of you isn’t an option, but without vital outreach functions you may be missing the vast majority of people who need help.
So, what can you do?
That’s where we come in. Our team is constantly working to stay up to date on the field of substance abuse treatment. We can provide you with customized, relevant articles and information that you can utilize to reach the people you want and engage them.
The best part? It’s free.
We want to use our expertise to help those affected by the drug epidemic. Each of you is doing important work and we want to recognize that by helping you have as much impact as possible. Whether you’re working to end stigma, educate people about the dangers of addiction, provide resources or care, or prevent substance abuse, we can help.
