Description: The outbreak of COVID-19 is stressful - it can be difficult to cope with fear and anxiety, changing daily routines and a general sense of uncertainty. Our communities are struggling with economic, financial, and mental stressors. During these uncertain times, drinking and drug use tend to rise and those who abuse alcohol and/or other drugs, are particularly vulnerable to high risk events.
