PreventEd is a local community health agency working to reduce or prevent the harms of alcohol and other drug use through education, intervention, and advocacy.
PreventEd counselors are the bridge between support systems and individuals who need help for alcohol and drug-related concerns. They work with clients to determine what type of assistance will be most appropriate for their individual circumstances. PreventEd counselors can assist family members, individuals seeking treatment resources, and people looking for ongoing recovery resources.
When you come to PreventEd, you know that you are getting the best care possible from professionals who care. Here’s what our counselors can do for you:
Provide Assessments And Early Intervention For Teens And Adults
Our counselors are professionals trained to work with people with substance use disorders and their family members. We provide assessments and early intervention for both teens and adults that works to enhance motivation to changes, develop healthier alternatives, and explore the consequences of substance use.
All counselors are credentialed through the Missouri Credentialing Board. Individual counselors may hold additional licenses and credentials so our clients can find the right counselor for their needs.
