In continuing with GUNG’s support for this campaign, it is reaching out to those who are or know someone who is experiencing substance misuse and abuse.

GUNG recognizes that there is a stigma with seeking help for a substance abuse problem. In the Guam Army National Guard, the Substance Abuse Program has a self-referral initiative called the Limited Use Policy (LUP).

In the Guam Air National Guard, Mr. Bill Hazel, the Director of Psychological Health is available to Airmen seeking help with Substance Misuse and Abuse. He can be reached at 689-1374.

If you have any questions or for more information, please contact the Substance Abuse and Suicide Prevention Office at 344-1281. “Be Happy. Be Brave. Be Drug Free.™️
