Promoting Older Adult Health: Aging Network Partnerships to Address Medication, Alcohol, and Mental Health Problems

This publication is designed to help older adults gain access to needed substance abuse and mental health services by promoting new linkages between well-known, trusted, and heavily utilized providers of aging services and relevant substance abuse and mental health services. By joining these systems, we can more successfully identify older adults who are at risk for problems with alcohol, medication, and mental disorders and connect them with the prevention, education, outreach, and treatment services that can dramatically improve their lives.
