ASAC provides prevention services to serve individuals and families. Family prevention services are focused on increasing the knowledge and skills needed to help prevent substance use and gambling disorders and training on identifying the signs and symptoms of a substance use or gambling disorder.
Individual prevention services aim to identify problems early before they develop into a substance use or gambling disorder. ASAC can provide individual or small group education when a youth or young adult has had some involvement with substances or problem gambling but does not meet the criteria for treatment. In addition, we offer the 12-hour course required by those under the age of 18 who receive an OWI charge. All of our educational programs utilize evidence-based curriculum proven to reduce substance use and problem gambling and increase critical life skills needed to reduce their risk of future harm related to substances or gambling.
