Addiction and Recovery Services

Are you or your family member an entertainment professional interested in looking at your relationship with alcohol and drug use? We provide caring support in helping you achieve and maintain a healthy relationship with alcohol and drugs. 

We can work with you to develop an individualized plan that can include sobriety, abstinence or moderation.

With caring support we can help you:

  • Look at the role that alcohol and drugs play in your life
  • Reflect on whether or not alcohol or drugs are preventing you from reaching your life goals
  • Explore how your relationship with alcohol and drugs developed and the purpose it serves
  • Set goals to improve your overall health, wellness and your significant relationships

If you find that alcohol and drugs are negatively impacting your life we can help you and your family members:

  • Enter into a recovery process
  • Learn effective coping strategies
  • Take responsibility for managing your life without mood – altering substances
  • Develop an individualized plan including abstinence or moderation that can include referrals to treatment, coordinating care with treatment programs and advocating and negotiating treatment costs on your behalf.

We also help to educate and assist industry employers, supervisors, managers, agents, union representatives and others in addressing substance abuse issues in the workplace.

The Entertainment Community Fund is committed to maintaining your privacy and confidentiality.
