The Fairfield County Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health (ADAMH) Board is responsible for the planning, funding, and monitoring of mental health, addiction, and recovery services in Fairfield County.
Prevention promotes the health and safety of individuals and communities. It focuses on reducing the likelihood or delaying the onset of behavioral health problems (i.e., substance abuse, mental illness, suicide, problem gambling).
Treatment, as applied to behavioral health, is the process of therapeutic service delivery aimed at assisting the individual to recognize and understand the problem, make changes, and achieve personal empowerment.
Recovery is a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life, and strive to reach their full potential.
