Q: I need help with stopping use of substances. Can I request a no-cost voucher for myself?
A: YES: At any time you can Self-Refer and request a voucher! In fact, being proactive is commendable.
Q: If I request a no-cost voucher for myself, will my National Guard chain of command be notified?
A: NO: Your National Guard chain of command is NOT notified when you seek help/assistance on your own. They are only notified if use of the program is mandated due to a unit administered positive urinalysis.

Q: I completed the assessment using a no-cost voucher and I have been recommended for Brief Interventions. Will I get continued support to allow me to receive these Brief Interventions?
