Measles: Questions and Answers
Information about the disease and vaccines
The District of Columbia offers four locations where young people can go to seek help for a drug or alcohol issue. If a young person lives in DC and needs help or just wants to talk to someone about his/her drug or alcohol use, he/she can contact one of the treatment providers which are available through a network of providers.
Through the Adolescent Substance Abuse Treatment Expansion Program (ASTEP), youth may access services directly from the substance abuse treatment provider of his/her choice within the network. In many instances, the providers are near their homes, schools, or jobs.
Youth should know that what is discussed in treatment is strictly confidential!! Insurance is not necessary to seek help. Treatment providers are readily available to help all DC youth who need somewhere or someone to turn to for help.
