The OSAR program offers information and education on the effects of drug use on the individual and family. This service is available by phone, individual appointment and presentation to various civic organization, agencies and groups that would benefit from this information. Individuals needing substance abuse services will be scheduled for a screening to identify the extent of the substance abuse problem and discuss referral options based on the result of the screening.
