Young adults, particularly men and women ages 18 to 25, have long recognized as a population at high-risk for alcohol and other drug use. Relatively few preventative interventions have been developed for young adults in this age group, and those that have often failed to reach those individuals most at risk. We focus on helping this targeted group.
Only about 10 percent of people with a substance use disorder receive any type of specialty treatment. Further, over 40 percent of people with a substance use disorder also have a mental health condition, yet fewer than half (48.0 percent) receive treatment for either disorder. - Surgeon Generals Report
Our Partnership is a comprehensive life skills training program designed and developed for individuals in recovery, based directly on feedback from recovery communities, collected from surveys and one-on-one and group discussions at the Alliance of Coalitions for Healthy Communities Oakland County Families Against Narcotics meetings and extensive research done by a dedicated team and council.
The purpose of this program is to empower individual in recovery to move forward in their life skill development targeted specifically to their areas of need, thereby addressing the health and well-being of the whole person.
Recovery begins the moment the individual decides that a change is essential. More Often than not, individuals in early recovery become extremely discouraged due to past indiscretions with money, people and skills. They lack the the life skills necessary to understand how to approach their situations in a basic and simple format. Without guidance, individuals often struggle in silence, which ultimately fuels their own stigma with the disease of addiction which can, and many times will, lead to relapse.
