Help Us Prevent Addiction Before It Starts
Through our community events, educational programs, and local outreach, we are actively working on initiatives to prevent both addiction and suicides. We believe we can help break down the barriers that prevent people from getting help, provide a voice and safe place for under-served demographics, and work with physicians and health systems to improve overall community health.
Teen education program
Empowering Teens With A Voice & Resources For Help
There’s a lot of great resources out there for people struggling with addiction or mental health disorders. But we don’t think that those who need it, find it. They may not decide to find help on their own until it’s too late. That’s why at Jade, we believe in meeting people where they are is crucial. Far too often, discussions about addiction and mental health simply don’t take place. It’s not part of the traditional school curriculum. It’s also not often talked about in friend and support systems. We try to engage the community in a different way, to bring these conversations into the fold.
We’re proud to sponsor KOSI FM’s Teen Talk podcast. A podcast by teens, about the challenges they experience and struggle with, and how it feels from their perspective. Our hope is that other students and teenagers will find that they’re not alone. Please feel free to share and if you have ideas on other ways we can reach people please contact us. We’d love to hear from you.
Opiate education program
Creating the Future in Opiate Use Prevention
Our interdisciplinary model of care focuses on prevention initiatives and assessing the psychology of patients needing opiates for chronic or acute pain. Through a comprehensive program, we educate pain patients on everything from recognizing the signs of misuse to developing and utilizing support systems.
With the significant rise in opiate deaths and prescription abuse, protect your patients and practice by enrolling patients in our robust educational program.

Current statistics on the number of opioid deaths and substance abuse disorders indicate we need to do more in the prevention of opioid misuse. According to the Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) around 68% of the more than 70,200 drug overdose deaths in 2017 involved an opioid. In 2017, the number of overdose deaths involving opioids (including prescription opioids and illegal opioids like heroin and illicitly manufactured fentanyl) was 6 times higher than in 1999. It’s time we improve education and prevention efforts for patients who need pain medication for either acute or chronic conditions.
