A new generation of thought of how to address substance abuse prevention is upon us. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration (SAMHSA) has issued a guide on community activation for promoting wellness. The guide defines wellness and presents a number of ways communities can share the message of how one’s mind -set on health and wellness is central to the prevention of substance abuse and the many related health conditions.
Wellness is defined as an attitude one has toward the way they live to sustain healthy practices. It has a direct influence on overall wellbeing whereas; health encompasses a broad spectrum that is concerned with the treatment of diseases. You cannot have one without the other.
The ACHC understands this relationship and the need to build, incorporate and sustain community health and wellness interventions.
