    Answer:

    secondary prevention.

    Explanation:

    Recovery support services refers to a broad range or group of non-clinical services that are saddled with the responsibility of assisting individuals and family groups in initiating, stabilizing and sustaining long-term recovery from drug-abuse related disorders, behavioral health disorders or psychological disorders such as mental illness.

    Drugs or substance abuse can be defined as the intentional (willful) and excessive misuse of an illegal (illicit) or legal drugs or substance in order to induce sleep, relieve pain, enhance recreation, and other forms of intense abnormalities.

    In the public health model, secondary prevention programs are programs that are designed specifically to reach people who have started using some substances such as marijuana or cannabis and to prevent them from abusing them or advancing (moving) to more dangerous substances such as cocaine, amphetamine, ecstasy, heroin, GHB, etc.

    Basically, a secondary prevention program is focused (aimed) at an early detection of substance abuse and tries to prevent a victim from getting worse or escalating into the use of more dangerous substance.
