So you are not sure how to prevent drug or alcohol use? Or what to do if you suspect or have discovered substance use? The information and resources you seek are close by.
We all know that the teen and young adult years are confusing, complicated, and formative. Understanding what’s happening socially and developmentally — and how it can intersect with substance use — is fundamental to setting the stage for healthier outcomes.
At Wellspring Center for Prevention, if you’ve come to our site seeking information, guidance, or referral services you have come to the right place. We provide education and support to those who need assistance confronting the disease of dependence. Whether you are seeking information on substance abuse, the type of treatments available, wish to speak to one of our Preventionists about treatment options, or wish to do it anonymously on our website, you’ve come to the right place.
We compiled a detailed guide to help you understand the various types of treatment options available. Each level of treatment from detoxification to inpatient and outpatient programs to support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous will be explained, so you can make the best decision for you. At any time, you can call our helpline (732-254-3344) to speak to one of our Preventionists. This service is available from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
We have also replicated our call-in helpline through our online Self-Help Tool. After providing some relevant information, this tool will provide you with a personalized level of treatment that is most appropriate to you. In addition to recommended treatment providers, you will also receive recommendations on 12-step groups appropriate for you. Families and individuals who are in need of help can more quickly and easily connect with available resources. Our portal is optimized for mobile use; and, results are sorted by relevance and proximity
And finally, I thought you should know about our Jason Surks Memorial Prevention Resource Center. Named after a special young man who died of an accidental prescription drug overdose, the Resource Center is a repository of information related to a wide variety of alcohol, tobacco, and other drug issues. We offer an extensive online library of downloadable pamphlets, links to authoritative articles, and original content related to Alcohol, Drugs, Youth & Teens, as well as Parents & Families. We also offer a comprehensive collection of Helpful Links to national resources regarding Treatment, Special Populations, Prevention, Government Agencies, Community-based Organizations, and 12-Step Support.
We hope you never need to use our helpline, but we hope you will use our other resources. We wish each of you a Happy & Healthy New Year.
