Substance Abuse Awareness

Substance Abuse Prevention Programs

At Neil Kennedy Recovery Centers, we understand that addiction affects not only the person with substance use, but their family, friends, loved ones, and even employers. The physical, emotional and financial effects of addiction on our communities can be absolutely devastating.

For these reasons, we offer special substance abuse prevention programs that are designed to help employers, students, and the community at large, learn about the implications of substance use disorders. We give you the educational tools necessary to identify problems and build strategies to ensure healthy, drug-free environments.

Call 330-744-1181 to learn more about our substance abuse prevention programs. Our Supervisor of Community Resources can help you determine which program is best suited for your needs.

Workplace Training

One of the many myths surrounding people struggling with addiction is that they are unemployed. In reality, as many as 70 percent of drug abusers are gainfully employed and abusing drugs at and/or outside of work. With this statistic in mind, it is much easier to understand why workplace training programs, such as our Drug-Free Workplace program, are so important.

This training is meant to help foster a healthy, drug and alcohol-free, recovery-friendly work environment. Workplaces that remain free of drug and alcohol abuse demonstrate teamwork, communication, respect, and productivity. At Neil Kennedy Recovery Centers, we provide companies of all sizes access to our Drug-Free Workplace program. We educate program participants on the following five steps they can take to ensure a drug-free workplace:

  • Written Policy
  • Employee Education
  • Supervisor Training
  • Employee Assistance Program
  • Drug Testing

School Prevention Programs

We offer two types of prevention programs to our local school districts, a psychoeducational approach for training students and faculty as well as the application of “Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment” (SBIRT). SBIRT is delivers early intervention and treatment to people with substance use disorders and those at risk of developing these disorders. At Neil Kennedy Recovery Centers, we believe education and an open dialogue are key to prevention.
