Crisis Management

 
 

Here's where you can find help.

Often we never think to ask for help because we've been conditioned to take responsibility for ourselves and our circumstances. This isn't a weakness, rather it takes a great deal of humility and courage to admit to yourself and those around you that you need some help. We understand this because we have been there too.

Limited Use Policy

One of the most important things Soldiers need to become familiar with when it comes to the Army Substance Abuse Program is the Limited Use Policy.

The Limited Use Policy is intended to encourage Soldiers to self refer so they can receive the help they need for illegal drug use and alcohol abuse. It helps facilitate treatment and rehabilitation of those who demonstrate the potential for rehabilitation and retention.

The Limited Use Policy limits the negative actions that can be taken against Soldiers who self refer prior to being notified of a urinalysis. For example, the Limited Use Policy allows Soldiers to be protected from charges of admitted drug use and possession that occurred prior to the self referral.

For more information regarding the Limited Use Policy and the self-referral process, please contact the UTARNG Substance Abuse Prevention Coordinator.
