For Health Care Professionals
The Partnership has gathered resources to help you identify patients who may be struggling with substance use and how to help them.
Remember, talking with parents about being involved in their children’s life and inquiring about their friends, extracurricular activities, grades and mental health are ways to bring prevention into the conversation before a problem is suspected or occurs.
