Substance Use Disorder Services
The impact of Substance Use Disorder is felt by people of all ages, backgrounds, and cultures. As with other serious challenges to our health and well-being, individuals and families affected by the disease of addiction can benefit from community support, a sense of connection, and help accessing important resources.
A resource for families of individuals with substance use disorders, the JCS Family Navigator’s goal is to ensure that family members have the information, support, and resources they need to cope with the stressors and challenges they may experience in response to their loved one’s struggles with the disease. Our Family Navigator meets with one or more family members to determine their needs and collaborate on a plan of action.
- Assessment to clarify the current situation, and to identify and prioritize needs
- Education to help family members better understand substance use disorder, their loved one’s behaviors, their own reactions, and the realities of recovery
- Guidance in locating and navigating behavioral health services including inpatient and outpatient treatment programs, therapy, support groups, and helplines
- Connection to wraparound services including career services, case management, prevention education, and counseling
- Follow-Up to provide ongoing support, as needed

Our behavioral health clinicians provide individual, family and group therapy that can help people explore and address issues that may have contributed to their substance use, and support their efforts in recovery.
As part of our Prevention Education, JCS offers age-appropriate education and outreach to raise awareness among children, teens, and adults about substance use and other behavioral health issues that can impact their physical, emotional, mental wellbeing.
