Drug and alcohol abuse doesn't recognize boarders. It’s with that in mind that St. Louis’ National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse is rolling into Jefferson County with a new transitional counseling program.

Executive director Howard Weissman and counselor Chris Allen visit Fox 2 News in the Morning to discuss the program.

The TCP provides a supportive environment that enhances motivation to change, helps explore the consequences of substance use, and works to develop healthier alternatives. If treatment for chemical dependence is necessary, NCADA will make an appropriate referral and provide ongoing support until the desired treatment is available.

As part of the TCP, teens will find educational assistance from mentors and tutors in the lounge.

Caregivers will find skilled counselors that promote healthy family relationships. Community partners such as schools and treatment providers will find a new ally in their efforts to help young people. Tthanks to generous funding from the Missouri Foundation for health and the St. Louis County Children’s Service Fund, there is no charge for NCADA’s transitional counseling program.

To schedule an assessment or get more information, call 314.962.3456 or e-mail Chris Allen at
