This question can be addressed whenever is most convenient for the facilitators. I am a job coach for a young man in recovery from cocaine and heroin use. He is working toward his first year (about 8 months) since using cocaine and heroine. He is a frequent user of marijuana.He comes to our job search meetings high. The first interview I took him on he was also high. He does openly disclose this to me, but not to employers. From time to time says, "Well I could have a needle in my arm. Marijuana helps me..." This man does not have a medical marijuana card, and is not using medical marijuana. I want to be as supportive of this young man as possible. He has a recovery coach, a therapist, an MRC counselor, and me, as well as doctors.Is it considered a best practice to shift from one substance to a less harmful and/or legal substance? Is it best to just be supportive of this young man and not address his marijuana use? He states that his marijuana use really helps him prevent anxiety and nervousness.

That would be extremely helpful in NH, there are very limited services and none specific to ID/ ASD/ TBI.
