With new Executive Director Jennifer Hrbek on board, Positive Directions – The Center for Prevention and Counseling inaugurated its new location at 90 Post Road West in Westport on Jan. 24 with a ribbon cutting attended by staff, directors and business and government leaders. 

“I want the community to know our incredible team of clinicians and prevention experts so that they can be astutely aware of who to contact for help during times of need – whether that be seeking mental health or substance abuse treatment with a licensed clinician or learning how to get involved with grassroots prevention work to fight the opioid crisis,” Hrbek said.

Established in 1971, the nonprofit provides alcohol and substance misuse prevention and individual counseling services. It principally serves the towns of Fairfield, Norwalk, Weston, Westport and Wilton.
