Other agencies such as LICADD, which provides substance abuse counseling, say they are ready to help those in need.
"We have moved to secure video to talk with our clients who may need assistance or referrals to detox as in patients or outpatients," says LICADD Executive Director Steve Chassman. "And of course, our phone banks are open. We have suspended direct client services, but our offices remain open."
Experts say some ways to ease anxiety and stress include setting a schedule, exercising and performing acts of kindness.
