Addiction is a disease that impacts everyone around the addicted person. We are now offering community presentations at businesses, agencies, and other groups in Houghton. The goal is to educate friends and family of people with addiction so they better know how to both support their loved one and take care of themselves. Referral to resources is also available.

Communities That Care (also known as CTC) is an evidence-based prevention model that helps lower rates of youth substance use, delinquency, depression, and more. Dial Help staff coordinate the Houghton/Keweenaw CTC, and also support UPCTC, the umbrella organization of the CTCs across the Upper Peninsula.
All community members are welcome to participate. A few hours of your time a month can truly make an impact--because research show that CTC WORKS! Together we can create healthier, safer communities where our young people can thrive.
