COALITIONS

EXISTING COALITIONS RECEIVING SUPPORT FROM UP NORTH PREVENTION

A coalition is a structured arrangement for cooperation and collaboration between otherwise unrelated groups or organizations, in which each group retains its identity but all agree to work together toward a common, mutually agreed-upon goal.

In northern Lower Michigan, several coalitions are in place that address substance use issues. Up North Prevention can assist any group of citizens, organizations, law-makers and educators in developing and running a substance abuse prevention coalition.

For assistance in setting up a coalition, contact or call (800) 356-5755. Your email will be directed to the professional working in your community and they will be in contact with you.
