Life can certainly throw us all a curveball at times. Whether it’s an unexpected illness or injury or disruption to our work or home life. We all do our best to cope with these challenges, but sometimes, that can lead to overuse of medications, alcohol, or even illegal drugs, that have adverse consequences on ourselves and the people we love. There are many resources in our community that can help you or someone you love get help before these issues get out of control or begin to recover both from the overuse and from the underlying circumstances that put you in that position.

Urgent / Emergent

Hospitals –The community hospitals of the Finger Lakes Health Network staff their Emergency Departments with an individual trained in helping patients in crisis. If you or a loved one need immediate help in a crisis situation, please come to the closest ED, so we can evaluate your needs and connect you with the appropriate resources.

PREVENTION

CRAFT is a program that is sponsored by the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids and offers parents tools to change their interactions with their children, in order to more effectively influence childrens’ choices about substance use.

NARCAN

Narcan is an injection that is available at key sites throughout our communities and can be available in your home. It is used to prevent fatal overdoses, which can happen when someone uses a substance that is laced with an even more powerful and often lethal substance they were not expecting. Free Narcan kits and training on how to use them is available at these locations:
