Treatment and counseling are vital to those needing help with addiction and mental health disorders, however prevention is integral to saving dollars, and more importantly saving lives.
CompDrug has been certified by OhioMHAS as a Prevention Services Provider. Prevention services are a planned sequence of culturally relevant, evidenced-based strategies which are designed to reduce the likelihood of or delay the onset of mental, emotional and behavioral disorders. Our prevention services utilize both Education and Environmental strategies, along with supporting strategies of Community-based Process, Alternatives, and Information Dissemination, and for some of the prevention programs, Problem Identification and Referral.
CompDrug prevention programs focus on preteens and teens through the Youth to Youth program, adults at risk though our H.I.V. Early Intervention program, and older adults through Senior Sense.
