Crow Wing County Treatment Programs Still Available Amid COVID-19
Crow Wing County Community Services and local treatment programs are still committed to providing support to residents who struggle with substance use disorders and mental health issues.
While the CDC has recommended social distancing, residents in Crow Wing County are still dealing with mental health and substance use challenges which are only being exasperated in these difficult times. Social distancing can turn into social isolation, therefore staying connected and asking for help is very important.
Crow Wing County Community Services is offering some tips to combat some of the issues people are struggling with. The first tip is to use web- and phone-based services. Many support groups, churches, and mental health and substance abuse programs are available through other communication methods.
The second tip is to stay active. It is important to be intentional in any activity, and residents can establish new routines like exercising, walking, or riding a bike.
