A Quick Analysis On Smart Programs For Alcohol Help
New Ideas On Realistic Strategies In
The partnership sprang from a long-term project assigned at the beginning of the school year in Alimohamadi’s community health class at MCG. She and her group were given the task of working with a community organization to address a health issue in the community. “I’ve always been really interested in mental health, and seeing such a strong outlet [in Nuçi’s Space], I was really drawn to the aspect that we could make a big difference in one person’s life pretty much immediately,” Alimohamadi says. Addressing alcoholism wasn’t the first idea the group had. The approach came about after it received responses from a survey it had sent out through Nuçi’s Space. Among the many answers the group got back, one stuck out: many people stated they believed they had an alcohol problem, but hadn’t reached out to anybody for help. “We started kind of connecting those pieces together, and we were like, ‘I wonder if people know they can come to [Nuçi’s], or if we could educate people on where they can go for that sort of help,” says Bob Sleppy, executive director at Nuçi’s Space. To many in the community, Nuçi’s is primarily seen as a provider of mental health services. However, the nonprofit also provides support for those suffering from substance addiction. The student partnership aims to raise awareness of the availability of these resources. In addition, the campaign works to help educate people on the signs of substance abuse and what resources are available both at Nuçi’s Space and in the community at large to connect those seeking help with those resources. “We want to get the word out there, and hopefully we’ll see a few more people [realize] that substance abuse and alcohol abuse can be addressed at Nuçi’s,” Alimohamadi says. One specific target for the group’s campaign are the musicians of Athens.
