Abuse Awareness and Accountability – formerly known as the Amends Program – Abuse Counseling and Education Inc. (ACE)
We help provide education and awareness to attendees of our classes towards problematic life patterns. We are certified by the Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence (ICADV) as a Batterers Intervention Program and contracted through Kidstrak and Recovery Works. Anyone can attend one class for free to see the numerous life area’s our classes bring awareness to and we work with other area resources.
Addiction Resource works in several ways, namely by:
- providing up-to-date, accurate, and evidence-based information related to addiction, substance abuse, mental health, and treatment
- referring individuals to informational resources for all their addiction treatment needs
- the facilities chosen for our Top 10 lists are put through strict criteria during examination, which you can find on our “How We Choose” page. No facility can submit themselves or pay to be on a list.
- topics on the site are selected based on research, which tells us what our audience may be looking for, which types of addiction individuals across the nation may be facing, and which types of treatment may be most helpful and effective.
We help people of our community work through the hard things they have experienced by providing the highest level of trauma therapy available. We offer outpatient counseling in our east side location. To make an appointment, please call our office at 812-471-1776. Please do not email to request an appointment or to seek emergency help.
Youth First provides a menu of proven programs to equip young people with the mental health resiliency necessary to respond to life challenges with positive choices rather than with risky “escapes” like substance abuse, self-harm, violence, or emotional withdrawal. Youth First Social Workers are embedded in schools and present every day school is in session, equipped with the best prevention and early intervention skills to help students build resilience and trust instead of turning to much more dangerous coping strategies like getting high, acting out with violence, or harming themselves. They are specialized mentors who are readily available to assess and address student, family and school needs. They also coordinate with community partners to connect students and families to resources and services. A list of social workers in area schools can be found at youthfirstinc.org. Students and families who have been victimized by crime can contact the Youth First Social Worker by calling the school office.
