Employer and Community Resources

To solve Northwest Colorado’s substance use disorder problem, we need everyone’s awareness and help. If someone you work with or know may be struggling with SUD, you can be a lifeline. Research shows that social connections matter deeply to people with SUD and are integral to recovery. It’s never too soon to reach out. In fact, early intervention often helps head off worsening trouble and could prevent a tragedy.

Where to Start

1. Learn more.

To learn more about symptoms, risks, treatment options, emergency care, and other critical topics, visit samhsa.gov. Call Colorado Crisis Services at 844-493-8255 (or text them at 38255) to talk to a trained counselor about any particular problems you’re seeing.

2. Help mentor your community.

As an employer, manager or community leader, you are such an important link in the chain. You can help by creating an open culture in your organization. The more people feel safe talking about their experiences and valued no matter what, the more likely we are to see positive SUD outcomes as well as prevent additional substance use disorders.

3. Talk to the people you’re concerned about.

Express your concern. “I care about you and want you to get help” is a positive message. Try to avoid blaming and arguing. Offer to help them make an appointment with a counselor, primary-care provider or clinic.

NOTE: If this is an emergency, call 911 immediately.
